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:  Eikev, Deuteronomy 7:12-11:25

Moses exhorts the people to be faithful to God's commandments in exchange for which God will bless you and multiply you above all other people. You will not fear other nations, but will slowly dislodge them and come to possess the land. But do not worship their gods. During the 40 years in the desert God tested the people with hardships. When the people had no food, God provided them with manna to prove that "man does not live on bread alone, but that man may live on anything that the Lord decrees." (This is the source of that famous verse, but often used to teach other lessons.)
