Under the leadership of Rabbi Hanna Tiferet Siegel and B'nai Or's Service Leadership Team our services, held throughout the year, are creatively filled with prayer, song, storytelling, dance and meditation. Unless otherwise noted, all of our services, beginning September 2014 will be held in our NEW home at First Parish in Waltham, 50 Church St., Waltham.
