Jewish Gateways

Do you long for Jewish tradition and community that is meaningful to you? We welcome wandering or wondering Jews and non-Jews of all backgrounds.

Jewish Gateways is ... • An emerging community, gathering for creative, participatory, spiritually sophisticated, and intellectually honest Jewish experiences. We invite participants to explore Judaism and Jewish life in an open environment, at your own pace, and to engage in ways that you find meaningful. • Rooted in Jewish tradition, blending the modern and traditional into reimagined Jewish experiences that address people's real lives. • Open and inclusive. We welcome people of all backgrounds -- Jewish, Jew-ish, part of a Jewish family, considering Judaism, or just wanting to explore. Single parents, those in interfaith relationships, LGBTQ folks, Jews of color, multiracial families, young adults, and spiritual seekers of all ages. • Drawing on the ancient, yet so relevant, riches of Jewish tradition to respond to the thirst for meaning, connection, celebration, spirituality, and community, and to questions like, "How do I ... live a life of purpose? ... respond to and grow from the challenges of life? ... make a difference in the world?" • Experimenting with ways to build sustainability -- the structure and resources we need to create dynamic Jewish experiences -- and flexibility -- a variety of ways for you to engage, depending on your needs and interests. We invite you to participate with us in creating this community!

Mission: Jewish Gateways serves Jews, their family members, and spiritual seekers who want to connect with Jewish life and community. We help participants explore the riches of Jewish life, make choices that are right for them, and find their place in the Jewish community.
