San Francisco’s first and only Reconstructing Judaism congregation. Embraces Jewish tradition and values and encourages questioning and experimentation. Honors spiritual growth through many paths: prayer, music, art, food, reading, studying and working for social justice.

Celebrates and honors the diverse paths that have brought members home to this congregation.

Brings joy and the collaborative beat of music to everything, starting and finishing most meetings, services and classes with melodies or song.

Jewish, non-Jewish and “it’s complicated”; straight, gay and “it’s complicated”; single, married and “it’s complicated”; old and young and in-between. All are welcome (and that’s not complicated).

Began more than 30 years ago as a place where people could share their Jewish heritage with their children in a nonjudgmental, egalitarian context. Today, the religious school is still central to the synagogue’s identity. Committed to tikkun olam, with and active social action groups focusing on health care, interfaith relations and environmental issues. Full list of activities on the calendar at the website.
