A different kind of Shul
Welcome wherever you may be on your Jewish spiritual journey.
A wonderful spirit is alive at The Boston Synagogue.
Here are some things you may want to know about us:
The Difference-- We are a warm, small, neighborhood shul
- Unlike large suburban synagogues that can often appear impersonal & unwelcoming, the best word that describes us is “intimate.” Everyone knows everyone else & visitors are welcomed, including at our Saturday kiddush lunches – where almost everyone stays around to talk.
- We get together for monthly community Friday night dinners & newcomers are frequently invited to a home Shabbat dinner
