The Boston Synagogue is a warm, small, neighborhood shul — with community at our core. Connect with friends and neighbors, including interfaith and LGBT, in an open and inclusive environment. The Synagogue is an informal and unpretentious space where people across Jewish denominations can make their own spiritual and cultural connections.
As the only synagogue in downtown Boston with Shabbat and Holiday services 52 weeks per year, we serve as a hub for people living or working downtown and in the surrounding neighborhoods. Friends, neighbors, and members come largely from Charles River Park, Back Bay, Beacon Hill, the North End, the South End, the Waterfront, Charlestown and adjacent Cambridge. There are even some who come from the North and South Shore.
We strive to offer many gateways to Jewish life, learning, and fun — whether you’re engaging in discussion with our Rabbi-in-Residence at a Friday Night Dinner, participating in weekly Shabbat Services, or attending one of our many Holiday Celebrations.
We encourage people to participate in our vibrant community by becoming members and/or supporters of the Shul. Your contribution goes a long way to strengthen spiritual, cultural and educational programs and our unique Jewish community in downtown Boston.
