Congregation Or Ami is a dynamic, sacred community (kehillah kedoshah) located on the Southside of Richmond, Virginia which welcomes people of all backgrounds who seek spiritual fulfillment and engagement grounded in principles of the Reform Jewish Movement. We welcome all who are interested in joining our community.

We were raised in different Jewish denominations;
We were raised without affiliation;
We were raised in other faith communities;
We were raised without religious participation;
We have chosen Judaism;
We have chosen Jewish loved ones;
We are single, married, divorced, widowed;
We are in interfaith relationships;
We are in interracial relationships;
We are adopted; we are all ages, abilities, and orientations;
We are together now; we are one congregation; we are one extended family;

We offer support in times of need, joy in times of celebration, and at all times trust, friendship and community. Visit these pages to learn about our many programs, but visit in person to experience our Jewish spirit.

Learning is fun! The Butterfly Project


Rabbi Ahuva and the teachers of the Joy Kramer Religious School taught our children about the Holocaust by reading "I Never Saw Another Butterfly" by Pavel Friedman and having the kids and other congregants decorate butterflies made from plastic milk jugs. The butterflies were then hung in the sanctuary across the entire window.
