Welcome! We look forward to meeting you. 

All of us are created in the image of the Divine and carry a spark of divinity within us.

If you're interested in Judaism, visit or call. 

If you've felt on the edge or outside of the Jewish community in the past, we'd like to change that.

Let us know how we can help.

Diversity

Har HaShem welcomes everyone interested in Judaism. Our thriving community welcomes individuals of all religious backgrounds, races, ethnicities, gender identities and expressions, LGBTQ*, marital status, family structures, socioeconomic status, political affiliations, abilities, or ages. 

Inclusion

Har HaShem aims to include individuals of any age who may temporarily or permanently move, hear, see, touch, think, learn, communicate, process stimuli, and/or experience emotions differently.

Our Inclusion Committee actively reviews our programs, policies and procedures to improve accessibility for all. If you have questions or need an accommodation, please email inclusion@harhashem.org.

If you are planning an event, please see our Inclusion Checklist for Events.

Har HaShem has:

  • Accessible public spaces including the Sanctuary and bima.
  • An inclusion specialist on staff to support our education programs.
  • Accessible, non-gendered bathrooms in our North Building with changing tables for children.
  • Gluten-free options at receptions and special events.
  • Large-print prayer books.
  • Picture books for children.
  • Customized bar and bat mitzvah preparation to accommodate different children’s needs.

Allergies and Sensitivities

In order to protect the safety and health of everyone, we ask that you not bring nut products into our building and that you do not wear fragrances and scented products when visiting Har HaShem.

We Try Our Best

Being an open, welcoming and inclusive community requires us to balance competing needs. Turning up the lights for those with weakened vision may cause migraines in others. Welcoming one person's support animal triggers someone else's allergies.

If you have a need we aren't accommodating, please let us know. We want to help you feel seen, heard, and welcome. At the same time, we know we can't address every need.

Thank you for understanding that we aspire to balance when we cannot meet the needs of all in our community.
