WELCOME HOME

We are a Reform Jewish community where you will be warmly welcomed and affirmed.
We’re married and single, with and without children, toddlers and great-grandparents, straight allies and LGBTQ, seasoned Jews, interfaith, and folks who are beginning to connect with Reform Judaism.

Our programs and services are open to all, so check out our calendar or give us a call. We can’t wait to meet you!

UPCOMING PROGRAMS

The 24th Annual Mitzvah Day will look different again this year! Join us again for Mitzvah Month.

The world needs us more than ever, and while most of our opportunities to give back will take place virtually or from a social distance, our commitment to our local community through volunteerism and tzedakah is unchanged.
