Our Community


Families with children will appreciate our educational offerings which range from Foundation School (ages 2-5) to ALIYAH (our K-12 Jewish learning program), to our USY teen-based programs. Because learning does not stop once adolescence ends, we offer many adult programs, too. We truly are egalitarian and welcoming. Think of us as your congregational family. 


We are located in the heart of Southwest Portland, easily accessible from all points in the metropolitan area in a beautiful facility that was totally modernized and updated in 2008 featuring the largest Jewish library in the Northwest, three chapels, a boutique-style gift shop, and plenty of parking.

Shabbat Times

isaakParshat haShavua: Toldot   Genesis 25:19-28:9

 With this week's parashah we move on to the second and third generations of Israelites. Last week we focused much attention of the search for a wife for Isaac. This week with Isaac 60 years old (we do not know Rebecca's age), Rebecca like her mother in law, has difficulty conceiving (a common Biblical theme). God responds to Isaac's prayers, allowing Rebecca to conceive twins who compete already in her belly. At an oracle Rebecca is foretold that the older will serve the younger. Esau is born first though we are informed that Jacob held on to Esau's heal as he emerged second.
