About Us

OUR MISSION:  We are an open-minded, inclusive, and intergenerational Jewish community, working together to share and promote Jewish tradition and values in our lives, in our homes, in our community and in the world.  While our synagogue is affiliated with the Conservative movement, our members represent a wide variety of religious beliefs and practices within Judaism.  We welcome all who walk through our doors seeking a Jewish home to pray, to learn, to connect, and to celebrate with us.
