Welcome… Come as you are!

We are a Reform congregation dedicated to Judaism as a living and growing faith. Wherever you're coming from in your relationship with Judaism, this is a place to explore where you want to go.

We Are All Made in God’s Image 

Our community is a mix of people: married and single; with and without children; straight and LGBTQ; Jewish and not Jewish; many races, ethnicities, and ages. We value every soul, young to old, and every person’s contribution to our community.
We know that we are all in this together, and that we each have to find our individual way. We honor each other’s opinions and experiences, we enlighten one another, we agree and disagree. We tell our stories and build bonds of friendship.

Friday night services begin at 8.

Religious School

We approach every child as an individual—from personalized Hebrew instruction to enabling them to help conduct Shabbat morning services. Our focus on each child successfully integrates children with special needs.

Shabbat morning classes focus on community-building and Jewish learning in a lively, interactive setting. During the week, students meet with a partner and their teacher for Hebrew lessons by videochat. Lessons are supplemented with online Hebrew games.

Our Community

This is the community to which we bring our hunger for learning, our spirituality, our curiosity, and our skepticism; our bond to Judaism and, sometimes, our alienation from it. We use study and prayer as jumping-in places, as means to skip over small talk and superficiality to explore our relationship with that which is greater than ourselves, whether we name it “God,” “Judaism,” “the universe,” or something else. We take our texts seriously, and we also laugh a lot.

As a community, we continue to pray for the complete and full recovery of our beloved Rabbi Emeritus, William Kloner.
