Shaarie Torah welcomes you to explore our community. We offer traditional Conservative services, where you will feel right at home. Our Holiday and Shabbat programming has something for every member of the family and for every age.
On Shabbat, a traditional Conservative Shabbat morning service is held in the Main Sanctuary at 9:15 a.m., led by Rabbi Joshua Rose. In addition, each month we feature a Community and Family Shabbat morning service from the fall to the spring, where friends and families come together for casual and inspirational prayer. This joyous event is led by Education Director Dorice Horenstein.
There are many opportunities for spiritual reflection and engagement throughout the year. Every summer, Shaarie Torah gathers together to celebrate Shabbat in the Park. During the High Holy Days, the community starts the year off with services in the Main Sanctuary and Community / Family Services in the Social Hall.
Whether it is decorating the Sukkah or baking cookies for Purim, we are a busy and active Jewish community. We invite you to check-out our Calendar and Facebook pages to learn more. If you have any questions, or would like to meet with Rabbi Rose before attending a service, please call the synagogue office at (503) 226-6131
