About Us

"Shir Hadash" means “New Song,” and as a vibrant and evolving Reform Jewish congregation we join together through song, Torah study, and community. Founded in 1980, Shir Hadash is now a medium-sized congregation of almost 600 households, making us large enough to offer a large and diverse array of programs, but small enough to be a close-knit community promoting life-long connections and mutual support.

Passionate individuals founded Shir Hadash to be a safe haven for a diverse community that celebrated each other’s individualism. Today that tradition is kept alive through an actively involved community that promotes connectedness, exploration, social justice, individualism and lifelong learning.

Senior Rabbi Nico Socolovsky

Senior Rabbi Nico Socolovsky graduated from Haifa University with a BA in Educational Management and Jewish Thought, and an MA in Jewish Thought. Following his studies in the Israeli Rabbinical program of the HUC, in both Israel and New York, Nico was ordained as Rabbi in Jerusalem in 2013. In 2021 Rabbi Nico became an Executive Scholar in non–profit management from Kellogg School of Business.  He is also a fellow in CLI (Hazon) – Clergy Leadership Incubator - dedicated to adaptive leadership and institutional innovation.
