We are proud of our history of both inspired rabbinic leadership committed to tikkun olam and service to the spiritual needs of our diverse membership. Our clergy and lay leaders strive to create a congregation that serves as a spiritual presence in the lives of its members in order to help cultivate and satisfy their religious, musical, cultural, emotional, and intellectual interests and needs.
