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.

If you have any questions about membership, please email Ken Schnur, Executive Director, at Ken@netivotshalom.org.

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, LGBTQ, straight, old, and young. We explicitly recognize and cherish each other as teachers and students.
