This includes a daily AM/Shacharit service with Kaddish (7:15 AM Mon. thru Fri.; 9:00 AM Sunday), a daily afternoon/Mincha service with Kaddish (6:45PM Sun. thru Th.; 5:45PM Friday) & a nightly community check-in with Kaddish (8 PM Sun. thru Th.; and welcoming Shabbat 6PM Fri.) 

UPDATE: 5/15/2020: Extension of Closure of Ohr Kodesh Facility until Sunday, June 14.

Facility Closure Status: With schools closed through the end of the school year, our facility closure is now closed through June 14. We will continue to monitor and keep track of government requirements and guidance. While Maryland has started easing, Montgomery County has not. Also our proximity to DC makes it such that we need to also keep an eye on what DC is doing. We will continue to adjust and adapt as the situation calls. The Executive Committee continues to meet as needed in addition to regular monthly times to address key items. The Executive Committee is next meeting on Monday, May 25. 

Virtual Programming:  Our eOK continues to be amazing. Thanks to all who are running programs! Please encourage people to attend. Three in particular are coming up that I'd like ALL BOARD MEMBERS to make a particular effort to attend and to publicize:

1. Volunteer Recognition - Spanning four 8PM check-ins this coming week we will honor our volunteer honorees - one each evening - David Friedman, Yvonne White, Diana Savit, and David Narrow. Our volunteers are crucial across all OKC. These four individuals have done amazing volunteer work and we want to make sure they know how much we appreciate their efforts. Please show your support by being on all four Zooms or as many as you can.

2. Shavuot - watch announcements and emails for Shavuot programming. We will have several great learning opportunities in lieu of an in-person Tikkun Leyl Shavuot

3. JOY! Series - This is our annual fundraiser this year. The first event, a comedy show, was excellent. We've got several more coming up. Please publicize and attend the series!

We wish everyone continued good health and strength.
