Welcome to our Shul!
Netivot Shalom invites you to engage in a cross-generational discovery of Jewish inspiration and purpose.
Our community is defined by the values of:
- Belonging – we believe, as a participatory egalitarian community, that every member has a voice.
- Learning – we provide introductory and continuing encounters with Jewish wisdom.
- Ritual – we strive to deepen personal engagement with the sacred.
- Justice – we embrace Judaism’s call to perfect the world.
Netivot Shalom began in 1989 and grew out of our founding members’ collective commitment to creating an egalitarian spiritual home for Conservative/Masorti Jews in Berkeley, California. We are members who are Jewish and not, Jews-by-choice, interfaith families, multiracial, multicultural, married, single, families and individuals, LGBTQQ, straight, old, and young. We explicitly recognize and cherish each other as teachers and students.
