Special exhibition on Jewish history: For Liberty: American Jewish Experience in World War I is on display through November 11 at The National World War I Museum and Memorial in Kansas City, Mo. Hailed as “remarkably prescient” by the New York Times, this special exhibition examines the American Jewish battlefield and homefront participation through a series of remarkable stories and objects.

Shakharit service has been rescheduled from its usual third Thursday of the month to the fourth Thursday (Sept. 27), as part of the Sukkot campout.

No Spanish service in September.  Next service October 20.

The purple pop-up will pop up again at the UNplaza Art Fair. Our own Rukhel Wisoff-Fields, author and artist, has been accepted into this event. It’s called the UNplaza Art Fair because it’s held near another famous art fair (psst, the one on the Plaza). Please support Rukhel today and tomorrow at Southmoreland Park, 4600 Oak St., KCMO. The park is west of the Nelson-Atkins Museum, between Oak St. and Warwick Blvd.

Sukkot Campout and Prayer Retreat is a great way to celebrate the seven days of Sukkot, Tishri 15th-22nd, by setting up your tent/camper near the Or HaOlam Fire Pit. It will be similar to the Israelites’ Camp in Bible times.  There will be Fire Pit Prayer/Praise every night at 7:30 p.m., so be sure to bring your shofars and instruments. 

     Camping Dates: Sunday, September 23 to Monday, October 1.  Bring camp stove, grill, ice chest & whatever you need to fix your meals and sleep in your tents. Restrooms are available in the Or HaOlam Synagogue building, as well as picnic tables and folding chairs.  No showers or kitchen facilities are available.  Camp Fees for electric service:  $5/day (No charge to camp for non-electric users.). Please pick up your camping reservation form from the literature table in the foyer.

Some of the men met and have made exciting plans for the Father/Son Campout, set for October 6 and 7. This is not an ordinary campout! It is designed to uplift and impart the Father's heart to  the next generation in our shul by communicating value, fun and LIFE to our boys. Special fun and teaching events are planned. Please notify Jim Templer or Greg McIntire of your interest and to be included.

About Or HaOlam


Or HaOlam teaches Jewish life in the Messiah of Israel. We are part of a world-wide movement of Jewish Congregations and people of all ethnic groups who follow Yeshua (Jesus) in the context of Jewish lifestyle and identity. We meet weekly every Saturday morning at 10 am.


The Vision of Or HaOlam:

Working to bring Jewish people, and those grafted in, to their covenantal identity in Messiah.  Implies: 1.) Salvation through the Atonement of the Messiah; personal faith in the atoning death and resurrection of Yeshua; it's all about the King  2.) Covenantal identity of Jewish people, not replacement  3.) Restoration to Torah lifestyle  4.) Restoration/survival of the nation of Israel. (Covenantal identity, so Jewish believers don't assimilate.  Romans 11:15 "For if their casting Yeshua aside means reconciliation for the world, what will their accepting him mean?  It will be life from the dead!)
