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
