Warm and welcoming community

Congregation Or Atid  (which means “light of the future”) is a dynamic and committed congregation in Wayland, MA, a short drive west of Boston. For over 25 years we have lit the path for those seeking a meaningful and engaging Jewish life in Metrowest Boston.

Inclusiveness and participation

We are a progressive, egalitarian Conservative congregation that openly embraces individuals and families from different backgrounds. Interfaith, single or partnered, gay or straight, already involved or seeking Jewish connection, all are welcome here. Our shared values support a deep love of Judaism and its traditions in a way that is accessible for all.

Core values

What makes us truly special is the intimacy of a Jewish community that places great value on joyful connections among our members, caring for each other and bettering the world around us. Jewish learning is at our core and we constantly strive to ensure that our members, regardless of age or stage of life cycle, experience the full breadth of Jewish knowledge and tradition and expression of personal spirituality.
