OJC is an egalitarian congregation with a warm, welcoming spirit. Our Rabbis and Cantor inspire us with meaningful learning and lively prayer in the context of services. OJC is also proud to maintain our two daily Minyanim for those in our community who wish to pray or are looking for comfort in times of loss. We encourage everyone to participate in services and find meaning in reaching out to G-d.
Visiting relatives or here on business, from out of town? We welcome everyone to our Daily Minyan and weekly Shabbat services.
Please join us at our daily and Shabbat services and be “counted” in our minyanim!

OJC also has many different types of services for children and families.
Kol Haneshema – Voice of Soul
The Kol HaNeshama Minyan service is lay led and encourages joint davening and participation. We meet once a month downstairs in the multi-purpose room creating an intimate and informal environment, as an alternative to Oceanside Jewish Center’s regular traditional Shabbat Service that is held upstairs in our Main Sanctuary. At each service our voices sound a little stronger as we feel more comfortable with the chanting of the prayers and the melodies.
For more information and schedule of services check out Kol HaNeShama.
