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.

Please Join Us

The Temple is Now Open!

We welcome you to join us in-person or virtually for all of our Shabbat services and programs. Please view our calendar to get more information on the event you would like to attend. 

Members of Shir Hadash met for Congregation Meeting, February 6, to ratify next Senior Rabbi Nico Socolovsky.
