Sukkat Shalom is a unique and innovative congregation serving a diverse group of individuals and families within an intimate spiritual home.

During the year there are various opportunities for discussion, support, and learning. Rather than a specific “outreach” program, all of the programming of Sukkat Shalom is designed to nurture the quest for meaningful spiritual growth within the context of Jewish tradition.

We are proud to have created a synagogue which is special in so many ways, from family education to spiritually engaging worship.

Learn More

A transformational congregation celebrating diversity. Welcoming the intermarried, the unaffiliated, and those searching for a meaningful Jewish life.

Sukkat Shalom means a “sukkah of peace.” A sukkah is open with no roof or permanent walls. Sukkat Shalom, the Open Congregation, uses the image of a sukkah to remind us that our spiritual life is open to others and to God – flexible and dynamic.

We offer a full program of innovative family education, meaningful and creative worship, adult discussion and study, interfaith couple support groups, and holiday observances.

Sukkat Shalom is a progressive synagogue in which to explore Jewish thought and search for personal meaning.
