Or Ami Happenings


Costume Ideas for Purim

Or Ami has a special service slated for March 10th when, along with our Purim celebration, we welcome fifteen new families who’ve joined our congregation in the past year. In honor of Purim and frivolity, please wear costumes!

The next event in our year-long series on understanding gender diversity occurs at Or Ami on Sunday, March 19, between 2 and 3 pm.

We are featuring Dr. Jake Newsome, author of the Pink Triangle Legacies, who will speak about the experiences of LGBTQ+ people – especially gender non-conforming individuals, during the Holocaust.

This event is co-sponsored by the Virginia Holocaust Museum and Diversity Richmond.

We are grateful to the Jewish Community Federation of Richmond for a generous grant, which has enabled us to plan these educational and community-building events and hopefully foster improved understanding and acceptance for all individuals and families in the greater Richmond area.

Or Ami Book Club meets on the first Monday of each month at 7 p.m.

March’s selection is “Missing File” by Dror Mishani on March 6th, and on April 3rd, Stefan Zweig’s, “The Royal Game.”
