Congregation Shirat Hayam provides multiple gateways to Jewish life, learning and prayer, social justice (tikkun olam), celebration, culture and the arts. Our programming allows our congregants of all ages to connect individually and collectively in the way that best meets their needs.

We define ourselves in how we choose to serve these needs while respecting the ritual, educational and social boundaries we set as a Conservative congregation. Our boundaries will be set by halacha, and our congregational values and preferences.
