We are a vibrant, egalitarian, Reconstructionist congregation of families and individuals from diverse backgrounds, bound together by a shared belief in a thoughtful and progressive approach to Judaism. With a deep respect for tradition, we seek to evolve as the world around us evolves. The creative spirit of our members fuels our community as together we learn, share lifecycle events, support each other and commit to tikkun olam.
