Who We Are

Printer-friendly version

Congregation Solel is a spiritual home that engages our community in prayer, learning and the pursuit of social justice. We prize inclusiveness, innovation, and involvement in our programs, life cycle events and leadership. Everyone who walks in the building should feel inspired, uplifted and connected.


Our essence:

  • In the late 1950s, our founders chose the name Solel because it means pathfinder or trailblazer in Hebrew.
  • We have always strived to be a synagogue that tries new things and charts new paths in Jewish life.
  • We honor and embrace individuals’ unique paths in Jewish life.
  • As Reform Jews—and as Solel—our definition of community is intentionally broad. We embrace interfaith families and all who seek a spiritual home in our synagogue.
