What/Who we are

We are a Jewish egalitarian community based upon the equality of men and women. Each person can, using the unique talents and qualities that he/she has inherited and developed, offer their services as gift within and to the community. Beth Shoshanna is a Masorti kehilla, i.e. part of the Masorti movement of traditional/conservative Judaïsm, counting approximately 2 million Jews worldwide.

The beautiful shul which we use is both a Beth Knesset and a Beth Midrash. Beth Knesset means a house of (in)gathering. We gather together for shul (synagogue) services, we eat together, we sing a lot and also celebrate many of the Jewish festivals together. Beth Midrash means house of learning. We learn together and as community also develop and facilitate Jewish cultural activities.
