Community

Interfaith Families

Sisterhood
Join a diverse group of women that come together for friendship and study to further the goals of our synagogue. Sisterhood creates an atmosphere from members to fulfill their potential and reach into the community for tikkun olam – the repair of the world.

Brotherhood

Next Generation (20s-30s)
Young adults explore what Judaism means to them, and how it can inspire and impower them throughout their lives and careers. This group also allows for opportunities for members to connect with the greater Jewish community.

Act 2 is a social group open to all of our members who are 55 or older.
