Congregation Or Ami is a dynamic, sacred community (kehillah kedoshah)
located on the Southside of Richmond, Virginia
which welcomes people of all backgrounds
who seek spiritual fulfillment and engagement
grounded in principles of the Reform Jewish Movement.




Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we now offer hybrid versions (virtual and in person) of most of our usual in-person events—including Shabbat services, adult education classes, and committee meetings. Those age 5 and older who wish to attend events in person must be fully vaccinated. Masks are currently optional for Shabbat Services and most programs other than Religious School* while local transmission levels are low or in the CDC’s green zone. If local transmission rates increase again, we may need to reinstate the mask requirement for everyone age 2 and older in order to minimize the chances of a COVID outbreak in our community.

*We are still requiring all students and staff to wear masks indoors for our Religious School in order to protect our youngest students who are not yet eligible for the COVID vaccine.

Any updates about our COVID policies will be announced in our weekly email and posted on our Facebook page. If you are new to Or Ami and do not receive the weekly emails that go out to Or Ami members, you can contact us here for information about upcoming services, classes, and gatherings.
