Welcome to our Congregation, Family and Friends! At L’Dor Va-Dor, we practice an all-inclusive, universal, and rational approach to Judaism where all are welcome through our doors, both literally and virtually, regardless of beliefs, backgrounds, or orientation! It is a Judaism that honors tradition, respects science, and celebrates spirituality. We like to call this Cosmic Judaism, an inspiring and rational “InspiRational” Judaism. We invite you to help us in building the Judaism of Tomorrow! We offer dynamic and joyous celebrations of Shabbat and holidays and are socially-conscious about our world, environment, and current events, led by our amazing Rabbi Barry Silver, with music provided by our Cantor Carol Garrett. We welcome you to join us on this journey and to experience all we have to offer. We lovingly welcome those who seek to learn more about Judaism and perhaps even consider adopting Judaism as their faith! This short music video, with lyric adaptation written by our Rabbi Barry Silver, might just sum up the view shared by L’Dor Va-Dor … please CLICK HERE to view.

Join us and see if this may be something meaningful to and for YOU! Enjoy an up close and personal time with our rabbi!
