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 30 families. We are centrally located in Bala Cynwyd at The Homework Bar, 131 Montgomery Avenue.

We are currently 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
