San Francisco


Synagogues play a distinctive role in sustaining Jewish life and community from generation to generation.  For those who choose to affiliate, synagogues offer deep and vital relationships and the embrace of community: They encourage Jewish growth, learning and observance through the phases of life; they offer pastoral support, ritual observance, and sacred community in moments of change, loss and joy.

Below find a list of local congregations by denomination.  In addition to assisting families with the life cycle rituals surrounding the  birth of a baby, many of the congregations below have Tot Shabbat services and other programs for young families.
