Shaaray Tefila, The Center for Jewish Life is a multi-

  • Encourage ethical and religious practices in everyday living
  • Enhance Jewish education in the family
  • Support the observance of the Sabbath and festivals
  • Foster a sense of communal responsibility among members
  • Sponsor and promote educational and cultural activities in the congregation

Anyone interested in any of these purposes is encouraged to become a member.


Congregation Shaaray Tefila has a gift shop in the main lobby that can serve many of your Judaic needs. We have a great selection of jewelry, mezzuzahs, candlesticks, books, limited edition items and other beautiful gift items.

If there is an item we do not have in our gift shop, we’ll do our best to find it for you.

The gift shop is open during normal office hours: Monday-Friday from 9AM – 2PM.
