This year, 5782, the Shaarie Torah community will embark on a year-long journey of kindness, seeing if we can do over 18,000 regular acts of kindness (RAK) in our community and in our daily life.

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! 

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.
