Organization Description – As the only synagogue in a wide geographic area, we welcome and support all those who cast their lot with the Jewish people, regardless of prior knowledge, background or orientation. We offer religious, spiritual, educational, cultural and community services and programs. We celebrate Shabbat and all holidays in our historic downtown building as well as in beautiful outdoor locations. Our educational programs appeal to beginning and advanced learners, and our cultural programs range from the music of Ladino culture and theater nights to Israeli film festivals and visits to a variety of Jewish and non-Jewish sites of interest.

Our Services: Spring and Fall: Sat. 9:15 AM Torah Study followed by 9:45 AM service (concludes about 11:45). Friday nights are sometimes at 6 PM with dinner, sometimes at 8 PM. In summer and winter months we offer either a Friday night OR a Saturday morning, but not both.
