Or Chadash, Temple Sholom’s LGBTQ community group is proud to provide a wide range of spiritual and social programming, including monthly Friday night Shabbat dinners and dedicated services, holiday and festival celebrations, a variety of social activities, and programs honoring individuals and organizations who have also served the LGBTQ community.  
Previously named Am Keshet, this group expanded when Congregation Or Chadash (New Light) founded 41 years ago as a Jewish resource for the LGBT community, combined its membership with Temple Sholom. 
Or Chadash had become a vibrant community providing a full calendar of religious services, observance of life cycle events, education programs, and social activities. In 2006 it was inducted into the Chicago Gay and Lesbian Hall of Fame.
