Town Hall Meetings: Future of OVS

The Future of OVS Committee has been working through the summer collecting data in different ways. The Future of OVS Survey was recently sent to all current members as part of this effort. It is our hope that there is 100% participation in this survey. If you did not receive the survey or have questions on it, please contact futureofovs@orveshalom.org

The next step in the process will be Town Hall Meetings. There will be three opportunities for our congregants to come together and share their thoughts through an envisioning discussion. Each session will last one hour and the discussion will be prompted by questions such as these:

• How do we make OVS more relevant in your life?
• What do you envision for the future of Or VeShalom?

This is important work and your voice is crucial to the process and the future of our Keilah.

Join us at one of these locations and times. Please RSVP to the OVS office.

• Sunday, August 26, 12 pm at OVS (1681 N. Druid Hills Rd.)
• Sunday, August 26, 4 pm at The Weber School (6751 Roswell Rd.)
• Monday, August 27, 7 pm at JF&CS (4549 Chamblee Dunwoody Rd.)

Your Path to Spanish Citizenship

Thank you to Luis Portero for presenting to us on April 22, 2018. Luis is an attorney licensed to practice in Spain and served as counsel for the Federation of Jewish Communities of Spain during the parliamentary process of approval of the Law on granting the Spanish citizenship to Sephardim. He discussed the process of getting the law enacted, of which he was a major contributor, and presented on the steps involved in applying  for Spanish Citizenship through this program. A copy of his presentation, including a detailed walkthrough of the process, can be found here.

Or VeShalom is proud to be a guide for you through this process. Please note that the program ends on October 1, 2019, so it’s best to get started right away. To find out more and begin the process, click here.
