This year, 5782, the Shaarie Torah community will embark on a year-long kindness journey, seeing if we can do over 18,000 regular acts of kindness (RAK) in our community and in our daily lives.
We’re asking you and your family (and any of your friends you want to pass this along to) to try doing a few kind acts every month and letting us know what you do by filling out our 1-minute survey when you do an Act of Kindness. We’re hoping to reach our goal of 18,000 by Rosh Hashanah 5783, and you can help us get there!
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.
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 Religious School & Wednesday Night School, and our social events calendar has something for singles and families at every stage of life.
Morning Minyan and Saturday Services in person and online, every week. Check out our offerings for communal prayer.
Our kehilah is always open to the Jewish community, and we welcome you to come and join us for one of our many events in person or online. Join us for regular morning minyan, weekly services, Adult Education classes, family and youth activities, and even craft nights. Our building is located in the heart of Northwest Portland, and our synagogue is within walking distance of 23rd Ave, the Pearl District, and some of Portland’s most popular stores and restaurants.
We look forward to having you join us in person for Saturday Services or virtually. Our Rabbi is always available for a meeting or conversation, and we welcome you to call our office at 503-226-6131 and set that up. In addition, our Judaica gift shop is currently open by appointment only.
We know there are many reasons why our members join and we are here for all of them. If you feel at home at Shaarie Torah, online or in person, we know you belong here. It takes just a few steps to become a member.
