we're creating a community unlike any other

a jewish home for generations.

"In this pandemic, a time of extraordinary challenge and pain, we are called to summon extraordinary goodness. We will get through this spiritually stronger if we do so together. Social distancing must be accompanied by acts that bring us closer. If we do this, the great foundation of Jewish flourishing – Jewish unity – will be truly manifest."
- Rabbi Josh Rose

Warm. Welcoming. Family-Oriented.

In the heart of NW Portland.

This warm and welcoming Jewish community has been around since 1905, and looks to the future by balancing contemporary and traditional Judaism. We strive to ensure that every voice is heard and that every member is counted At Shaarie Torah, we offer extensive programming and activities that work to foster Jewish values of social justice through: Torah/Learning, Avodah/Service and Chesed/Loving Kindness.

A member of the Conservative movement, we welcome Jews from across the religious spectrum. As an inclusive, family-oriented synagogue, Shaarie Torah is a great place to grow and learn. We offer Shabbat School & Wednesday Night School, and our social events calendar has something for singles and families at every stage of life.
