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.

isaakParshat haShavua:  Shoftin, Deuteronomy 16:18-21:9

The first part of Parshat Shoftim outlines the sources of civil and religious authority. Authority is entrusted to judges, kings, priests and prophets. Much like our American Constitution both the extent and limits of the authority of each one is delineated. "By making these limitations known to the public, the Torah lays the ground for public supervision and criticism of human authorities, thus preventing them from gaining absolute domination and prestige."
