About Us

We are one of the largest Reform Synagogues in the country.  
The synagogue community was founded in 1840 and we moved into our splendid grade 2 listed building in Upper Berkeley Street in 1870.
We pride ourselves on being a sacred Jewish community that celebrates the Divine, builds meaningful human connections, takes care of each other and works to repair the world.
 
We are a fiscally responsible and participatory community, sustained by our members’ financial commitments, voluntary efforts and involvement in our open, democratic decision-making process.
 
While our tradition provides us with a rich heritage, embracing new congregants ensures that we will be here for future generations.  You and your family, as prospective members, are important to us: You are our future.
 
We aspire to be:
 
A learning community spanning and bridging generations.
A participatory egalitarian community committed to open and democratic decision making grounded in Jewish traditions and contemporary perspectives.
A welcoming community embracing a diversity of life experiences and Jewish journeys.
A warm, caring community nurturing connection and support among its members.
A vibrant spiritual community celebrating and cultivating self expression and holiness in the rhythms of Jewish life.
An involed community dedicated to Israel, Reform Judaism and repairing the world.
Wherever you live and whatever your circumstances, the only qualification for belonging to our community - being part of your family - is that you want to.
