Dear Oheb Family:

Greetings from my home office in West Orange. Wherever you are, I am sending you good health, patience, resilience, and hope.

Oheb will remain closed until the shelter-in-place order issued by Governor Murphy has been deemed safe to lift. In the meantime, let's all do our part to keep ourselves safe. 

Reminder: if you are willing to help make phone calls to vulnerable congregants or shop for those unable to get out, please sign up here.
