Shaarei Shamayim Reconstructionist Synagogue
Shaarei Shamayim is a Jewish congregation dually affiliated with the Jewish Reconstructionist movement and Aleph: Alliance for Jewish Renewal. We come together because Judaism is our joy and we want to celebrate with each other, our community, and our children. We believe that by joining our energies in those things for which we have passion and vision we can build a community. We are committed to fostering Jewish spiritual experience through participatory and egalitarian services that are both creative and rooted in tradition.
We are committed to developing our congregation as a place of Jewish learning, where adults and children can study the traditional sources in a way that is meaningful for our time and world.
We are committed to being a welcoming and inclusive community.
We are committed to working toward tikkun olam (repair of the world).
We celebrate Jewishness in prayer, study, song, dance, meditation, and social action.
