About this Synagogue:
Chai Center for Jewish Life is a warm, welcoming and vibrant center for Jewish life and learning.
In order to be affordable and accessible for all, we have a voluntary dues model.

Our Sunday School program, which is focused on values and community, is uniquely interactive and hands-on, using an informal camp-style approach.

Our weekly Shabbat study is led by three dynamic, engaging and knowledgeable rabbis. Our prayer services are informal and musically-infused.

Community building is built through pot-luck Shabbats and holiday gatherings, as well as a full-range of social action endeavors.
