We'd like to invite you to become part of the vibrant Jewish community at Congregation Har HaShem. Enriched by the vast diversity of Jewish life in Boulder, Har HaShem is a Reform synagogue made up of congregants from all backgrounds including interfaith, LGBTQ, seniors, singles, and families.

We strive to open doors to deeper engagement with the Jewish tradition and with the Jewish community. This is a place that makes Judaism and Jewish teaching come alive with hundreds of adults engaged in spiritual enrichment, many for the first time in their lives. Families connect with one another to learn about Jewish traditions and celebrations, our children learn about applying Jewish values and teaching to their lives, interfaith families are engaged as an essential part of the community, and we are proud of our work in the area of tikkun olam, repairing the world, as it has had a significant impact on the lives of hundreds of individuals, both in our city, and beyond.

Har HaShem is also an active partner in the life of the broader Jewish world here in Boulder, supporting community initiatives and serving as a gateway to deeper engagement in the many Jewish initiatives in this unique and exciting city.

Come pay us a visit. Drop by for a powerful musical Shabbat service - especially on the second Friday of each month - or call to introduce yourself and learn more.
