Religious Life

The synagogue is a place where we come together to experience community. Our tradition offers us a myriad of opportunities to do so, whether it be through study, sharing a meal or engaging in social justice activities.

Our people’s deepest desires and longings are made manifest through the voice of prayer. Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel wrote, “Prayer may not save us. But prayer may make us worthy of being saved.” When we come together as a community to offer prayer, we create a complete vision of the world and our place within it.

Shabbat services at University Synagogue are joyful, exuberant and heart-opening. We join together through song and study of torah, simultaneously exploring ancient traditions and creating new paths.
