Young Professionals

For young professionals in their 20s and 30s

Young Professionals @ The Shaar grew out of a desire to connect – connect with the community, with Judaism, and with synagogue life. Since the group was conceived in 2014, YP@The Shaar has been a place for “kehilla” (community), where we come together for Shabbat and holiday meals, study groups, and of course, some great parties. The group is for singles, couples, and everyone in between. We hope you will take advantage of all that is offered.
