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 virtually and literally! It is a Judaism that honors tradition, respects science, and celebrates spirituality. We like to call this InspiRational Judaism, and 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. We welcome you to join us on this journey and to experience all we have to offer.
