 A Personal Invitation

Welcome to our homepage. Gates of Prayer is a Reform congregation offering many opportunities for people of all ages. I believe it takes us all to make the synagogue a place of worship, commitment and friendships. We would love to have you join us for a Shabbat service, attend one of our educational programs, or become involved in one of our many committees. There is a place for everyone.

The deepening of all of our relationships will better Gates of Prayer and I hope to be able to do this in many ways. I am truly energized to work together and make Gates of Prayer a thriving place of worship and education for the future. Thank you all for the opportunity and my door is always open.
