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:  Noah Genesis 6:9-11:32

 God determines that humanity has corrupted God's creation with violence and lawlessness, and resolves to destroy the creation and begin again. Noah is saved because he is "righteous and blameless in his age" and is told to build an ark that will withstand the flood in which he will save himself and his family and representatives of all animal species. The craft Noah is told to build is surprisingly small: 450 feet in length (1½ football fields), 75 feet in width and 45 feet in height. (It is described actually as a block, rather than the shape of a ship.) He is also told to collect food for the journey, but not told how long this collection would be at sea.
