Description: South Metro Jewish Congregation listed by Keshet, Portland, Oregon’s LGBT social group as being GLBTQQ friendly.
Per their website: Our Mission is to provide meaningful opportunities for people in the Portland South Metro region to join together for Jewish education, celebration, tzedakah, and worship. Our Reform Congregation is a community of Jewish and interfaith families and individuals who live in a primarily non-Jewish environment, geographically and culturally distant from the established Portland Jewish community. We welcome anyone, wherever they are on the Jewish spectrum. Our Driving Force is a common desire for our families and children to share a sense of Jewish belonging that comes from hands-on ownership within our own created community of mishpoche. We are a dynamic congregation of involved people who have chosen to connect or reconnect to Judaism and a Jewish identity. Our Vision is a community where Jews by Birth, Jews by Choice, and Jews at Heart are accepted and feel a sense of belonging. We are an open, inviting, and spiritually alive Jewish community, with families and individuals joining us from the greater Portland communities of West Linn, Lake Oswego, Oregon City, Gladstone, Milwaukie, Beaverton, Tualatin, Tigard, Wilsonville, Sherwood – and beyond. We honor the richness and tradition of Judaism in a manner that’s accessible to everyone.
