About Us

Sha'arei Orah is a Modern Orthodox congregation in Lower Merion. Founded in 2015, our weekly Shabbat morning minyan has grown to serve over 50 families.

We currently rent space at Adath Israel's Early Childhood Learning Center, 250 North Highland Avenue. Use the main entrance (facing Old Lancaster Road) and follow signs to our designated areas.

We are led by the lay leadership of our Board. Our Shabbat morning drasha is given by a different volunteer from our community every week.

Please join us to experience our uplifting tefillah and the warm, welcoming environment of our community!

Mission Statement

Sha'arei Orah is a Zionist, Modern Orthodox congregation that aims to cultivate an inclusive and welcoming environment while remaining strongly committed to Torah and halacha. We are striving to build a space for serious and sincere tefillah with a focus on the religious and spiritual growth of our members.
