We're Here for You

While we cannot gather in person, our caring staff and talented congregants have worked hard to get virtual services and events going! Please see below for lists of services, discussions and events coming up, including weekly Coffee Talks with Rabbi Aft. We are posting online content for our Religious School and hosting class discussions. Our Caring Committee is reaching out to every congregant, so no one has to feel alone or in need. We are an Adat Reyim - a "Community of Friends" - and we are here for you. 


Rabbi Search

Adat Reyim is undergoing a unique rabbi search process, clarifying our values and learning more about what we all need and want in our next spiritual leader. The Rabbi Search Committee solicited insights and comments from the congregation and then developed the job description based on the values and characteristics identified. We received more than 35 applications! Three candidates rose to the top and visited the congregation for Candidate Weekends. . Learn more here. 


Join Our Community

We are a caring, connected congregation, reflective of a diversity of Jewish practices and welcoming of interfaith families. A place of great ruach, or spirit, Adat Reyim’s calendar is brimming with spiritually engaging, fun and educational activities for all ages and backgrounds. We care about our neighbors of all faiths. Adat Reyim is small enough to know each other and large enough to be a thriving community! Get to know us so we can get to know you.  Click here to contact us to find out more!



Adat Reyim is our spiritual and community home. More than bricks and mortar, it is our Etz Chayim, our Tree of Life. We are all enjoying the sanctuary and lobby improvements - from new floors, lighting and movable walls to a new sound system. Soon we will rejuvenate our most sacred space, with an inviting new ark.  We will continue to help our lobby reflect our warmth and welcoming spirit..
