Congregation Sherith Israel is a pioneer synagogue of the American West. Founded in 1849, it has been a sanctuary for Jewish life in San Francisco for more than 150 years.
Congregation Sherith Israel is a place for joyful prayers, music and Jewish learning. Rabbi Larry Raphael and Cantor Rita Glassman conduct services and invite congregants to share in leading worship. We welcome the Sabbath with a lively service on Friday evenings at 6:00 PM, study Torah together on Saturday mornings at 9:15 AM and gather for worship on Saturday mornings at 10:30 AM. Our voices join together in song accompanied at various times by piano, guitar, organ and our congregational choir. Shared prayer and study enhance our Jewish journey.
