About Us

OJC offers something for everyone. Our Men’s Club hosts events such as a night at a Long Island Ducks game and a Passover Wine Tasting & Sale.

Not to be outdone, our Sisterhood sponsors a Holiday Boutique, Purim Shalach Manot basket delivery, a Women’s Seder, and a beautiful Judaica shop, as well as informative and entertaining programs.

Our PTA offers programs and services for parents of Nursery School and Religious children.

We also have a Youth Group (JOY) with events for our children.

Each of our synagogue’s arms offer monthly meetings at which our men and women bask in the warm company and friendship that OJC offers. The Inclusion Committee has actively been upgrading our facility for people with disabilities, including a ramp, hearing devices and a chair lift.

We want to have as much interaction with you as possible. Please check out and like our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter. You can also subscribe to our weekly e-newsletter called, HaDelet, The Doorway.
