Join us in creating a contemporary Jewish community that balances intellectual and spiritual exploration with mindful living.

We are a warm, open, and inviting synagogue community in Baltimore, MD.

We invite you to find your own connection with Judaism, understand and explore boundaries, and create a more kind, just, and respectful world.




Our membership is active.

You can engage in a modern Judaism that is personally meaningful and alive in our everyday experiences.


Children enjoy the relaxed atmosphere.

Children enjoy our innovative educational programs and develop Jewish identity through community, spirituality, and culture.


 We offer something for everyone.

Our programs for adults and families are born from the values and needs of our diverse membership, creating a vibrant and creative Jewish home.


We are growing.

Join us for learning and enrichment, celebration and uplift, inspiration and guidance, comfort and solace.
