The Orthodox Union Karasick Department of Synagogue Services and OU President Martin Nachimson of Los Angeles today announced that DelRay Orthodox Synagogue has become an official OU member congregation. The rabbi is Menachem Jaroslawicz.
The synagogue is located at 7319 W. Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach.
“Delray Orthodox Synagogue is approaching its tenth anniversary of serving the Modern Orthodox community of Delray Beach, Florida,” declared Harry Lazarus, synagogue president. “We recognize that the future growth of our synagogue will benefit significantly from its recent association as an OU member congregation, as well as by having recently engaged Rabbi Menachem Jaroslawicz as our spiritual leader.”
The OU recently also welcomed the Young Israel of Northridge (CA) and the Young Israel of Fort Lee (NJ) into its national synagogue network.
“The OU is honored to welcome the DelRay Orthodox Synagogue as a member of the OU Synagogue network,” stated Yehuda Friedman, associate director of OU Synagogue Services. “Belonging to the OU links members of the DelRay Orthodox Synagogue to a national network of Orthodox congregations and provides access to the various agencies of the OU, including NCSY, Yachad/National Jewish Council for Disabilities, OU Kosher, the OU Job Board, the Institute for Public Affairs and, of course, the Department of Community and Synagogue Engagement.”
Mr. Friedman also noted, “We are proud to be recognized for the value the OU provides to the leaders of OU member synagogues through initiatives which include the WINGS synagogue consulting program; youth professionals network; board development; and presidential mentoring. We look forward to a long and productive relationship with the OU's newest member.”
