Our Congregation is open and warmly welcomes all Jews, recognizing that each and every one of us is created “betzelm elohim”, in the image of God.

Jews have always looked toward improving the future for themselves, their families, their community, and for all humankind. This theme is rooted in the rich history of our tradition. First Hebrew is a vibrant blend of many Jewish traditions. We celebrate our differences and our common heritage as one community.

First Hebrew Congregation is obliged to meet the challenges that the future will bring. We need funding to operate the synagogue, maintain our physical plant, provide stability for clergy and staff, support our religious school.
