San Francisco’s first and only Reconstructing Judaism congregation. Embraces Jewish tradition and values and encourages questioning and experimentation. Or Shalom honors spiritual growth through many paths: prayer, music, art, food, reading, studying, and working for social justice. Find your Jewish home at Or Shalom!

Celebrates and honors the diverse paths that have brought members home to Or Shalom.

Brings joy and the collaborative beat of music to everything; starting and finishing most meetings, services, and classes with melodies or song.

Jewish, non-Jewish and “it’s complicated;” straight, gay and “it’s complicated;” single, married and “it’s complicated,” old and young and in-between. All are welcome (and that’s not complicated).

Began more than 30 years ago as a place where people could share their Jewish heritage with their children in a non-judgmental, egalitarian context. Today, the religious school is still central to the synagogue’s identity.

Or Shalom is committed to Tikkun Olam and has many active social action groups focusing on health care, interfaith relations, and environmental issues.

Welcoming to all who wish to attend any service or holiday celebration offered; see the full list of activities on the calendar at
