An inclusive and welcoming community for all — families and singles of all ages, Jews of color, Jews-by-choice, interfaith couples, LGBTQ+ people, and those on vastly different spiritual journeys. Members reflect the diversity of the Bay Area and the beauty of God’s infinite creation. Congregants come from all walks of life and many different religious, ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds.

Programs are designed to meet the varied spiritual, religious, educational and social needs of members. Committed to study (Torah), worship (avodah) and working to repair the world (tikkun olam). Also committed to strengthening connections to a peaceful, strong and vibrant Israel and to lasting peace with Israel’s neighbors.

For those not already a member of this or another synagogue, consider joining. Because membership should never be a burden., congregation makes it possible for everyone to join, regardless of financial circumstances.

Proud to have been a part of the San Francisco community since 1850. While that history provides a rich heritage, embracing new congregants ensures that congregation will be here to serve generations to come.
