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

Shalom! I am thrilled to be the new Senior Rabbi at Congregation Shir Hadash. From a young kid at Jewish summer camp to a camp director, to making aliyah to Haifa, to ordination at HUC in Jerusalem, my pulpit in Southern California, and now at Congregation Shir Hadash, the community has always been central to my life, and experience. From the moment my family stepped foot here, we felt the community. Join me on the journey of joy, growth, and search for meaning, and may we go together from strength to strength.

Ways to Support Shir Hadash

We are so thankful to our members and bay area community for your support. Here are several convenient ways to support the ongoing work of Congregation Shir Hadash:

  • Donate: You can donate in honor or memory of someone, or give to a special fund for a specific purpose.
  • Donate a Vehicle: We will arrange pick-up, transport, and all of the paperwork and Shir Hadash receives the proceeds.
  • Visit our Gift Shop: All proceeds from gift shop sales benefit the Sisterhood and are used by Sisterhood for important temple programs such as the campership scholarship program.
  • Legacy Circle - Planned GivingWhen you make a legacy gift you are doing a mitzvah that is both financial and emotional.  You are standing up and saying that you believe in our Shir Hadash community and want to ensure its long-term viability and stability through a financial gift. Please email us for more information.
