We are elevating life with Jewish Tradition

Shir Hadash is an inclusive synagogue community dedicated to heightening life with prayer, joyous music, immersive learning, deep connections, and active social responsibility. In the Torah, the concept of 'New Song' symbolizes joy, renewal, and transformation. It represents our shared commitment to an inspired evolution, reimagining our practices but always staying true to our core values. We stand at the crossroad where a Deep Love for Tradition meets Unapologetic Mindful Innovation. Rooted in the heart of Silicon Valley, we aspire to elevate life with down-to-earth Judaism.

Our Clergy Team

Join us on the journey of joy, growth, and search for meaning, and may we go together from strength to strength.

We Believe

We Believe in Spirituality:
In a social environment that praises dispersion we cultivate attentiveness and hope. We nourish our souls with music, prayer and loving community, strengthening our connection with ourselves, with each other, and with God.

We Believe in Wisdom:
We are seekers, we are passionate students and expert arguers! In the study of Torah, we find strength, growth, and renewal. In this amazing and constantly evolving world, we are encouraged to be lifelong learners.

We Believe in Community:
We aspire to create an "I see you" and “We care for each other” culture. Inclusivity and Diversity are not our policy but the essence of our people. We are glad you are here!

We Believe in Social Responsibility:
Responsibility means listening, hearing the call, and answering. In a world often silent on injustice, we challenge apathy, using our collective strength to forge paths of compassion and healing.
