<p>Congregation Ohav Sholom, an Orthodox Jewish synagogue, was formed in April 1962 and has grown from 14 families to nearly 400 families today.</p> <p>The synagogue encourages participation by its members, as it does not have a regular chazzan. Members are asked to lead services, including daven shachrais, musaf, lain, chant the Haftorah, daven mincha and maariv.</p> <p>A beginner's minyan is held periodically to enable individuals to become more comfortable in an orthodox worship service. A beginner's Hebrew reading class for adults is also available. The synagogue offers a very popular women's teffilah group which is under the guidance of the rabbi and remains within strict halachic confines.</p> <p>Each Shabbat, youth are offered a regular junior congregation with an experienced youth leader. The youth leader also holds many activities during the year on weeknights and Sundays.</p> <p>The synagogue's rabbi is Ira Ebbin.</p>
