Find Your Tribe Here

Shaarey Zedek has always been, at our core, a family.  Connecting our community is at the center of who we are. You can see it in the “magic” that takes place every Shabbat lunch after services. Or the lifelong friendships formed through Sisterhood, or even the meet-ups at our weekly adult learning.

Young Adults

CSZ Village is our family within a family for anyone in the 21-45 age range. When we gather together, whether it be for drinks, our regular learning opportunities, social outings, learning, or even a weekend getaway, we focus on a beautiful image of joining together in community to do good and be well. We welcome you, wherever you are in your life, and in your Jewish journey. Shoot an e-mail, text, or phone call to Rabbi Yonatan Dahlen, and set up a time to chat, and check us out on Facebook. We can’t wait to meet you and welcome you to the tree!


Sisterhood is the heart and soul of Congregation Shaarey Zedek. We are cross-generational sisters, and lifelong friends. We celebrate life’s joys and support each other in times of need. We get social and we educate; we participate in social action programs and lead important fundraising efforts for our synagogue and our local and international Jewish community.  We are more than just Sisterhood — we’re family. Connect with Sisterhood at or on Facebook.

Men’s Club

Congregation Shaarey Zedek Men’s Club members meet regularly to enjoy dinner, camaraderie and Talmud at Men’s Night Out at local restaurants, go together to Dinner and a Movie, host breakfast business exchanges, sponsor a Community Men’s Seder each year prior to Passover, and support Synagogue events as a group.

We welcome men of all ages who enjoy socializing, broadening our Jewish experience and supporting our local community. To learn more, contact us at

Empty Nesters

Are you a CSZ Empty Nester? If your kids have flown the coop (for college, marriage or a job opportunity out of state), join us. If those kids have bounced back home, or if you are a member without kids who is searching for a congenial group for outings and events that are entertaining, sometimes educational, and always fun, we’d love to have you! E-mail with your information so we can keep you up to date on our myriad activities! Connect here: Facebook Instagram


Our warm and caring Seniors group hosts engaging programming though the year, such as free monthly musical afternoons, a Chanukah luncheon and musical program, Travelogues and Jewish Historical Society Virtual Tours. We’ve even hosted Technology classes for seniors to assist with smart phones, tablets, connecting on social media and more!

The community is welcome to join us – we even have groups participate from senior residences across the area! For more information on how to be part of our activities, follow CSZ on Facebook, or call 248.357.5544.
