A warm welcome, meaningful relationships and mutual responsibility

About Us

Our synagogue's history is nearly as old as Dallas itself, founded in 1875 as the first Jewish congregation in North Texas. Though our location has changed a few times, we found our final home at the corner of Hillcrest and Northwest Highway in 1957 and completed a $38 million dollar expansion and renovation in 2016. Our spaces were reimagined and redesigned to put interaction at the forefront: with nature, with one another and on with God.

We welcome more than 2,500 families with diverse backgrounds and lifestyles through our doors and help them find their Jewish path through prayermusiclearning and community.

We hope you will take a moment to browse our website to learn more about what matters most to you and how we can help enrich your Jewish life.
