Welcome to our Shul!

Netivot Shalom invites you to engage in a cross-generational discovery of Jewish inspiration and purpose.

Our participatory egalitarian community is defined by the values of:

  • Belonging – we nurture connectedness with each other, with the broader community, and with Israel.
  • 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 repair the world through deeds of loving kindness and social action.


Yamim Noraim

Netivot Shalom began in 1989 and grew out of our founding members’ collective commitment to creating an egalitarian spiritual home for Conservative/Masorti Jews. We are based in Berkeley, California, and allied with the world of Jewish community. 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.
