Expect to be WOWed at the only Reconstructionist Synagogue in St. Louis!

Expect to be warmly welcomed the first time you visit, and already part of our small, inclusive community by your second visit. We’re only 55 members, so it’s easy to get to know us.

Expect to enjoy wonderful music with our spiritual leader, Cantor Josh Finkel.

Expect to learn new ideas and perspectives from our intellectual discussions every week that deal with Torah, ethics, current events and cultural topics.
Do not expect a sermon; we only have one of those a year!

Expect participative Shabbat and holiday observances and services that are an expression of liberal Judaism, partway between Conservative and Reform.
If you don’t know Hebrew you’ll be fine, because everything is transliterated.

Expect to enjoy potluck dinners to celebrate the first Shabbat of each month. Good food and great company are a wonderful combination.

Expect a Reconstructionist approach to Judaism. We are constantly working to integrate Jewish tradition, music, culture and art with contemporary America.

Expect to be WOWed by our community, friendship, music, observance, study, intellect, participation, inclusiveness, and egalitarianism.

Come visit us at the JCC (in the Arts & Education building of the Staenberg Family Complex). We’re right in the center of the Jewish community.
