One of the most important gifts we can give ourselves and our children is the knowledge and comfort that we are not alone. Through worship, study and tikkun olam, we affirm our support for each other. This participation and commitment, above all things, has sustained our Jewish heritage for almost 6,000 years.

In true family tradition we envision full participation by every member, where each person can discover a meaningful role. At the same time, we recognize that Judiasm is not "one size fits all". Given the diversity of our members of various backgrounds and interests, we seek to offer an array of modes of worship, education and activities for each member.

There are many paths to community at Chai. Congregants can choose from a wide range of groups and activities, including: youth groups, Chai young adults, Havurot and Journey Groups, Men's Club and Sisterhood, as well as synagogue-wide concerts and cultural activities.
