"Every assembly whose purpose is to serve God will in the end be established" (Pirkei Avot 4:14)

Our synagogue is dedicated to warm, personal and moving worship, as well as innovative and integrative educational classes and activities for both adults and children.

We further are committed to integrating all of our members into a warm and caring community based around the philosophy of "all Israel (in this case our community) being responsible one for each other." (Babylonian Talmud, Shavuot 39a)

I have no doubt that you will quickly feel at home within our social, religious, educational and communal activities.
