Community experience is at the heart of Jewish life. It's how we celebrate our culture, practice our traditions and share in each other's lifecycle milestones.

We're proud partners with DaMinyan. Drop us a message and we'll make sure your welcomed there by a familiar face.

Why do Jews go to Shule on Shabbat?

For a bunch of reasons.

Here’s a couple: connect with community, reflect on the week, celebrate Judaism, study Torah, share good times with friends and meet new people.
