Welcome to Philadelphia’s Jewish Renewal Community!

  • P’nai Or Philadelphia is a welcoming and diverse Jewish Renewal Community.
  • We come together in the Community wing of Summit Presbyterian Church, 6757 Greene Street, in the West Mt. Airy neighborhood of Philadelphia.
  • We meet on Jewish holidays and every Shabbat (Saturdays, 10:30 am – 1:00 pm). Throughout the year, we sponsor classes, get-togethers and holiday celebrations.
  • Our davvenen/prayer style is upbeat, celebratory and participatory, blending Hebrew and English song and chant with opportunities for reflection and sharing.

We look forward to getting to know you….
