Under the leadership of Rabbi Hanna Tiferet Siegel and B'nai Or's Service Leadership Team our services, held throughout the year on the average of twice monthly, are creatively filled with prayer, song, storytelling, dance and meditation. Unless otherwise noted, all of our services, will be held in our NEW home at First Parish in Waltham, 50 Church St., Waltham. Directions to First Parish in Waltham can be found HERE.

Each month is filled with many other opportunities to gather in community. Consult our calendar for other services, programs or events.
