Buddy Families

Warmly welcoming newcomers is a core value of our community. Our Welcome Committee pairs up new members with a buddy/family to help them get settled and connected to the many things Ohev Sholom has to offer.

NOW SEEKING: Ohev Sholom Members to volunteer to be buddies and help fulfill the mitzvah of hachnasat orchim.

Here's how it works...

You will be a buddy to new member/family for one year.

During that time, please make sure to:

  • Contact your buddy as soon as possible to introduce yourself.
  • Invite your buddy to a meal, coffee, brunch, etc. within one month.
  • Check in with your buddy periodically (every month or two and before chagim and other major events.)
  • Find other opportunities when possible to make your buddy feel welcome (e.g. introduce them to folks at shul, let them know about upcoming events, etc.)

To sign up to be a buddy, please email the Welcome Committee at
