Or Ha Lev (Light of the Heart) is a Jewish Renewal Congregation in Succasunna, New Jersey, that has been in existence for ten years. We are the only Jewish Renewal-affiliated Congregation in Northern New Jersey. Our twin missions are —

  • Engagement with Judaism and Jewish spirituality, and

  • The practice of “Deep Ecumenism” (meaningful interfaith relationships).

At Or Ha Lev, we welcome all who wish to worship, to learn and/or to participate in social action activities. We welcome everyone: those who may be affiliated with other congregations, the unaffiliated, those seeking a spiritual path; individuals, couples, families with children. We welcome interfaith families and are a LGBTQ-welcoming community.


To introduce yourself or for more information, please contact Rabbi Deb Smith.
