Welcome
Our Community

Welcome...

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. 

Welcome...

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:  Netavim - Vayelekh, Deuteronomy 29:9-31:30

Moses declares that everyone is included in the Covenant that the people are entering from the tribal heads and elders to those with the most menial tasks. He also specifically includes women and claims that even those not there are included. That is traditionally understood to include generations to come as well as Jews by choice. Moses reminds the people of their past history as slaves and their wandering to get to this point. He warns against individuals who want to go their own way thinking themselves immune from sanctions. Devastation will be brought to the land if the people collectively fail to follow God.
