About Us

Our synagogue is built on the three pillars of Judaism

Beit Knesset – A House of Meeting
We hope our synagogue is the supportive structure in people’s lives, a place that reinforces community. We have a keen pastoral care team who try best to support all members and our rabbi sees this as a high priority of her time.

Beit Midrash – A House of Study
Providing opportunities for text study, discussion, formal and informal learning from cradle to grave

Beit Tefillah – A House of Prayer
Shabbat, festivals and life cycle are offered in several forms: with organ, piano and/or guitar; reflective and creative. We use Siddur Lev Chadash and adapted family service prayerbooks with a mix of Hebrew and English

We hope all three happen with warmth and intention here at FPS.
