Discover Sherith Israel’s contemporary approach to our timeless tradition
Founded amid the exuberance of the California Gold Rush, Sherith Israel has welcomed the Jews of San Francisco and beyond since 1851. Our sanctuary, a jewel of synagogue architecture, has embraced and inspired worshipers for more than a century. And as a Reform synagogue in the heart of modern San Francisco, Sherith Israel combines a reverence for tradition with a passion for innovation.
