The Open Synagogue is an instrument to make Judaism’s knowledge and experience more accessible. It is not intended to supplant the traditional synagogue model but to be a complement, to help communities in their work and to reach out to those whom they cannot reach.
The open Synagogue does not have walls, but rather open arms to all those who, wherever they are and whatever their circumstances, want to fully live Jewish spirituality.
You’re not alone. This is your home. Welcome.
