Congregation Or Shalom is a Messianic Jewish Congregation open to everyone, based in Richmond, VA in the United States. "Or Shalom" means "Light of Peace" in Hebrew. Our prayer is that our Messiah uses this congregation in His mission "to give light to those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace (Luke 1:79)". We welcome you to become a part of our mishpochah (family) and join us for regular Shabbat Services and Bible Studies.
We are believers in Messiah Yeshua, the Son of God who delivers us from sin and saves our souls. Our doctrine is comprised of the entire Bible, revealing and confirming itself. Our worship includes observance of Torah and proclaiming the Good News from Zion.
