About Us

Mayim Rabim Congregation, founded in 1992, is affiliated with the Jewish Reconstructionist movement. We are an urban Jewish community that comprises people of diverse ages, abilities, sexual orientations, cultural backgrounds, and financial resources. We strive to create and sustain spaces that enhance the practice of Judaism in the contemporary world; to that end, we are a house of prayer, of study, and tikkun olam (the repair of the world). As Reconstructionists, we view Judaism as an evolving religious civilization and claim a shared heritage with all Jews.

We are an inclusive, heymish congregation and we welcome visitors!
