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

Dare To Do a Mitzvah

Dare to do a Mitzvah is our new social media initiative with the goal of getting community members to do good deeds. We will dare someone each week during our Tefillah on Sunday morning at Gates Quest School, ask them to film it, and then show everyone the video during the next Tefillah. And we ask all members of our community to Dare to do a Mitzvah and film it or take a picture, send it to Arnie, and we will post it on our social media pages. Let’s set the example—Dare to do a Mitzvah!


Mitzvah Month

Begins 11/1/21


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.
