Schaarai Zedek eNews

B’ruchim Habaim

The synagogue is traditionally known by three names: beit t’fillah (a house of worship), beit midrash (a house of study), and beit k’nesset (a house of gathering).

Schaarai Zedek is a welcoming, inclusive synagogue that embodies these three names. As a house of worship, we pray together in diverse ways, celebrating Shabbat and holidays with meaningful, engaging services. As a house of study, we learn together with creative methods, engaging classes, and intriguing lectures. And as a house of gathering, Schaarai Zedek is a place for Jewish families of all types to come together for events including movie nights, community service, and live music and dancing. Whatever we do, our goal is always to create and support the Jewish community and have fun while we do it.

But most importantly, the bayit that is Schaarai Zedek is not just a house, it is a home. As we pray together, learn together, and gather together, we love being together. Welcome home. Welcome to Schaarai Zedek.

-Rabbi Joel Simon
