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, most of our usual in-person events—including Shabbat services, adult education classes, and committee meetings —have been replaced by hybrid or virtual services, classes, and meetings until further notice. As long as it remains safe to do so, we are offering in-person Religious School classes for children. For events that have an in-person option (including Religious School), we require all participants age 5 or older to be fully vaccinated. And everyone, regardless of vaccination status, is required to wear a mask in order to minimize the chances of a COVID outbreak in our community. If you are unable to wear a mask, you can still participate in our events, services, and classes through the live stream and Zoom. For more information, you can read the postings on our Facebook page and read the e-mails sent to Or Ami members for additional updates.

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 our services, classes, and gatherings.
