Congregation Ner Shalom


Our synagogue began in May of 1982, when a small group of people came together to create the Sonoma County Synagogue Center, a congregation affiliated with the Reconstructionist movement. For many years we were without a permanent home, and we held our services and our school sessions in different locations. In the spring of 1994, we acquired our building and shortly thereafter changed our name to Congregation Ner Shalom.

Today, our congregation continues to thrive, nurtured and sustained by the energy and commitment of our congregants and staff. We are a spiritual community, devoted to Judaism as a "way of life" and not simply a "lifestyle". Through prayer, education and caring for each other, we are living our Judaism.

We invite you to join with us and look forward to welcoming you into the Ner Shalom community.
