Welcome wherever you may be on your Jewish spiritual journey.

A wonderful spirit is alive at The Boston Synagogue. We are a warm, small, neighborhood shul, and the only synagogue located in the heart of downtown with Shabbat and Holiday Services 52 weeks per year.

Our Mission is to serve the needs of the diverse community of Jews in downtown Boston, whether through joyful participatory worship, Friday Night Dinners, Saturday morning Kiddush, or Holiday Celebrations, as well as with a slew of Cultural Events and other fun and engaging opportunities to connect with our open, vibrant community. The Shul also offers dynamic learning experiences for everyone, from our growing Hebrew School to Adult Education programs.

We are unaffiliated — and the synagogue is post-denominational egalitarian, where both women and men actively participate in services. The Boston Synagogue is a place where people across Jewish denominations can make their own spiritual connections.

Synagogue in the News

On Wednesday, January 27th, Rabbi Daniel Klein gave the opening blessing at the Boston City Council meeting. 

My prayer for you, today, and every day, is that you keep your eyes fixed on the gaps between our aspirations and our reality even and especially when the rest of us may look away or get distracted, that you remain steadfast and devoted to the work of realizing the promises we make as a society, and that you find inspiration from taking up the mantle of our collective obligation to each other.

May you be blessed in your work and may we come to be an even greater City through your work.

Rabbi Daniel Klein with City Councilor Michelle Wu and Councilor Josh Zakim at the meeting on January 27th.

Rabbi Klein addressed the topics of religion and law by telling the story of exodus, but not the piece we often tell. Instead, he told of how the Israelites, having fled Egypt, wandered the desert until they arrived at Mount Sinai where they received the word of G-d. “It ends, in essence,” he told the councilmembers, “not with freedom but with responsibility for our lives and the life well lived.”
