Thank you for your interest in our congregation. We are eager to welcome you to our community.

This prospective congregant packet contains information about Netivot Shalom and the many opportunities for Jewish learning, ritual, and practice that are available to members.  We hope this material will be useful for you in making your decision about joining our congregation.

Shalom and welcome to Congregation Netivot Shalom!


I’m thrilled that you’re considering joining our community. I look forward to sharing the

beauty of Jewish life with you. There are so many ways to get involved; whether you’re

interested in Jewish study, ritual, social action, or simply being part of an extended Jewish

family, we warmly welcome you!


In these difficult times of sheltering in place, we need community and connection more than ever. Even as the coronavirus pandemic has necessitated social distancing measures, Netivot Shalom is staying strongly connected through a variety of online services, classes, social gatherings, holiday celebrations and opportunities to care for each other and for our wider community. We’ve heard from our members how much our community has been a lifeline for them in these challenging times.


Netivot Shalom’s unique strength lies in our participatory ethos. We continue to live by our

founding principles of participatory, egalitarian Judaism, where our members are

empowered to take ownership over their Jewish lives and experiences and to create the

community they desire for themselves. As rabbi, I serve to guide our community’s vision and

direction so that our members can come together in shared purpose. It is also my privilege,

as rabbi, to guide our members through life’s transitions and celebrations, whether it’s birth

or death, illness or healing, b’nei mitzvah or wedding, and everything in between.

I look forward to getting to know you and to helping you find your place in our wonderful

community. Wherever you might be on your Jewish journey, it is my hope that Netivot

Shalom will be a warm home for you to deepen your Jewish life and to connect to others in
