Where We've Been

Founded in 2003, COH has brought anew light to the north Atlanta suburb.  It offered a new way to worship, a deeply moving spiritual experience. 

Starting with about 50 founding members, we quickly grew to have over 300 people attend our very first Servicio de Shabbat (Friday night service) at our initial home, the Sandy Springs United Methodist Church.  We held our High Holiday services and Bar and Bat-Mitzvahs at the Greenfield Hebrew Academy.

In just four years, membership grew to over 300 and Congregation Or Hadash built its own sanctuary within the Weber School. High Holiday services were held at the Marcus Jewish Community Center for the first time in 2008 to meet the need of our nearly 1,000 members and extended families. Our diverse membership includes families from throughout the U. S. and around the world bringing an international curiosity and commitment to learning and social justice. 

Today our congregation proudly boasts a membership of 368 units, a thriving religious school, exceptional Tikkun Olam opportunities, diverse adult education programs and family activities, and music and study to elevate our prayer services. 

Now it is our turn to do something extraordinary for our synagogue.  It's our time to invest in the future as we purchase and renovate the facility that will become Congregation Or Hadash's first permanent home.

It's our Time to Shine...Join us on this Journey.
