Our Physical Location at House of Prayer Lutheran ChurchEach Shabbat, we offer multi-access services. We are proud of our partnership with House of Prayer Lutheran Church at the convenient location of Wurzbach and Ironside Drive. The Fellowship Hall gives us a flexible space to spread out as necessary and seat our congregation and guests for all services.
Kesher ClassroomThe large classroom space at House of Prayer Lutheran Church allows us to have multiple small groups meeting for Hebrew instruction, and then gives us flexibility to set up several different whole-group activities for KESHER SHALOM, our innovative and highly interactive youth education program.
Holiday ServicesOur joyful, creative holiday celebrations are appropriate for all ages. Young or old; single or family; Jewish, Interfaith, or exploring Judaism for the first time; whatever your story is, our congregation is inclusive in every possible way and you are always welcome.
Shabbat WorshipUsing our Reform Movement’s newest prayerbook, Mishkan T’filah, our Shabbat service is different every week. Balancing Hebrew and English readings; ‘traditional,’ Classical Reform, and contemporary melodies; sermons, divrei Torah, discussions, and Torah study; Rabbi Lisa Goldstein strives to keep our Shabbat worship engaging, accessible, and meaningful for the range of ages and interests of our attendees.
