Get Involved

Hebrew Synagogue welcomes your support in whatever way you can manage.

Splitting Judaism into 'Orthodox, Conservative, and Reform' is a purely artificial division. All Jews share one Torah. There are more observant Jews and less observant ones. We are all one. -- Menachem Mendel Schneerson (the Rebbe)

Hebrew Synagogue was born out of the inspiration of our Founder, Ram ben Ze'ev, a Sephardi Jew, who is the great, great-grandson of a victim of the Shoah. Our Synagogue, Beth Israel Synagogue, is primarily a place of worship and a place of peaceful rest. We are an independent Jewish community that cares deeply about our members and their families.


What is Kashrut?

Kashrut (also kashruth or kashrus, כַּשְׁרוּת) is a set of dietary laws dealing with the foods that Jews are permitted to eat and how those foods must be prepared according to Jewish law. Food that may be consumed is deemed kosher (/ˈkoʊʃər/ in English, Yiddish: כּשר‎), from the Ashkenazi pronunciation of the Hebrew term kashér (כָּשֵׁר), meaning 'fit' (in this context: 'fit for consumption'). Selecting a Kosher certifying agency is an important step for any business and the process should not be taken lightly.
