We are a Reform Congregation, a member of the Union For Reform Judaism, in the mainstream of liberal Judaism. As liberal Jews we look to our heritage as a repository of wisdom, insight and numerous possibilities for religious expression.
We welcome you to join us at one of our Friday evening or Saturday morning Shabbat services.
