A community of more than 300 households, with people of diverse beliefs and backgrounds: sing, learn, pray and celebrate.  Labels such as Reform, Conservative or Reconstructionist are not adequate to describe this creative organization. The community-created prayerbooks, used for egalitarian, participatory services, incorporate the best of all Jewish traditions.

Rabbi Chaim Koritzinsky leads weekly Torah study at 9 a.m. Saturdays. Outstanding youth education program for students 18 months to 18 years. Special-interest groups include hiking, singing and book discussions. Like an extended family, members actively support each other and celebrate together.
