We take inclusion and diversity seriously at Shaarey Zedek. We warmly embrace people of all races, genders, ages, physical or mental abilities, sexual orientations, religions, and prayer and observance levels.

That’s why we have aligned ourselves with Stand With Trans and Keshet. We’ve earned our reputation as a safe place of Jewish worship for the LGBTQ+ community. We offer same sex Jewish weddings on our bimah, as well as conversions from all faiths to conservative Judaism.  We want all Jews and their families to feel welcome at our synagogue no matter what their religious background.

We welcome the opportunity to work with families and individuals to create synagogue experiences  that rise above any perceived limitations –to create a relevant, spiritual and accessible Jewish life for you.
