Welcome to Charlotte!

Services at Chabad

Congregation Ohr HaTorah attracts community members from diverse backgrounds. Participants are not judged by their ability to take part, nor by their religious knowledge. 

All shul services are warm, relaxing, haimish and easy to follow. Friday night, Saturday morning, Mincha and weekday services enjoy a great spirit and communal participation. When you enter Ohr HaTorah, you will be greeted with a warm welcome, encouragement and support. Our shul participants are actively involved in the services, which are meaningful and inspirational.
