Our History

  • Or Chalom was started in 2006 by a few dedicated people.  The idea was to create a welcoming place where Jewish life and practice could be open and thinking, thought provoking and yet familiar, safe and yet challenging.  A small kernel of like minded people joined together for services that included women, education that included children, and outings that welcomed whole families.
  • It now has a small synagogue, a Talmud Torah teaching for the children, and was proud and happy to host several Bar and Bat Mitzvot
  • Or Chalom was open to the wider Aix en Provence community and takes part in Mitzvah Day and charitable social actions.
  • Or Chalom is proud to host Sefer Torah MST#1420 from the Pinkas Synagogue in Prague, that survived the Shoah. One of 1564 brought to London in 1964 by the Memorial Scrolls Trust in London, it is on permanent loan to us thanks to generous members – you can watch the video of its history by clicking on the image below.
