You are always welcome to join us for any program, service, or special event.  Our doors are always open to you and your family without regard to Jewish experience.

Throughout the year there are special events like Breakfasts with the Rabbi, presentations, services, and much more.  Check the calendar for upcoming events and make plans to join us!
