A community with you in mind

Coming together since 1905.

Our Shaarie Torah community has been growing, learning, evolving for over 100+ years in Portland, Oregon. We strive to create harmony and connectedness with our programming, events, and classes, bringing together people of different generations, backgrounds and interests to celebrate, share, discuss, study, and pray. As a place where Judaism thrives and is central to our hearts, we are here to bring deeper connection with our ancient traditions while translating our teachings to today. 

Get in touch by email and we'll get the process rolling or answer any questions you might have.

Always Learning.

The Torah inspires us to act in the world – in our synagogue community, in our local community and beyond – informed by its values of responsibility, compassion and justice.

Creative & Passionate

We cultivate and foster the spirit of innovation and creativity, aware that in each generation courageous Jewish leaders and communities have found new approaches to Jewish teaching and new expressions of Jewish life.

Grounded in Love.

Grounded in the belief that each person is created b’tzelem elokim, in the image of God, we strive to grow a community where people are treated with respect, dignity and love.
