Our Community


Families with children will appreciate our educational offerings which range from Foundation School (ages 2-5) to ALIYAH (our K-12 Jewish learning program), to our USY teen-based programs. Because learning does not stop once adolescence ends, we offer many adult programs, too. We truly are egalitarian and welcoming. Think of us as your congregational family. 


We are located in the heart of Southwest Portland, easily accessible from all points in the metropolitan area in a beautiful facility that was totally modernized and updated in 2008 featuring the largest Jewish library in the Northwest, three chapels, a boutique-style gift shop, and plenty of parking.

Shabbat Times

isaakParshat haShavua: Vayishev   Genesis 37:1-40:23

Though Jacob does not die until the end of the book of Genesis, center stage from chapter 37 through 50 is held throughout by his son Joseph. The Joseph epic is one of the most complex and beautiful in all of Biblical literature. Its overall purpose is clear: to transfer the location of the Israelite tribe from Canaan to Egypt where the book of Exodus begins.
