About Our Shul

A community with a vision

SVAJ is a Modern Orthodox congregation with a firm commitment to halakha (Jewish law), a spirit of inclusion and ahavat achim v'achot (love of fellow person), and strong commitment to intellectual discussion of Torah and other Jewish texts.

We invite you to join us in our “Big Tent” as we express the vitality and enthusiasm that defines us as Jews. Membership is open to all Jews regardless of affiliation, commitment or background.

The Three Pillars

 עַל שְׁלשָׁה דְבָרִים הָעוֹלָם עוֹמֵד, עַל הַתּוֹרָה וְעַל הָעֲבוֹדָה וְעַל גְּמִילוּת חֲסָדִים:

"On three pillars the world stands: on the Torah, on service to God, and on acts of loving-kindness." (Avot 1:2) 

Our synagogue community works to strengthen each of these pillars:

     Religious Services

     Torah Learning
