We don’t just observe Judaism. We celebrate it.

Embraced by our breathtaking historic sanctuary, Sherith Israel is a place to make Jewish friends and create Jewish memories.

We are a community that comes together to sing and celebrate our sacred holidays and festivals, mark the milestones in our lives and rededicate ourselves to social justice.

We are an innovative and open congregation that welcomes spiritual and secular Jews, Jews by choice and interfaith couples—whatever your religious background, ethnicity or sexual orientation.

Whether you’re looking for a Jewish education for your children or yourself, or looking for a warm Jewish community, visit us. Look around. We look forward to welcoming you.
