An egalitarian, progressive congregation that lights a path for over 150 families seeking a meaningful, engaging Jewish life in MetroWest Boston. Whether you’re single or partnered, gay or straight, Jewishly involved or seeking Jewish connection, from an interfaith or a Jewish home, join our welcoming community.
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 realize our community will always have a broad range of preferences and 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.
