Honoring Tradition. Creating New Ones.
Welcome to Am Yisrael.

Founded in 1968, Am Yisrael is dedicated to being the liberal voice of the Conservative movement. We strive to be a congregation that includes all persons, embracing differences of marital status, family structure, sexual orientation, gender and its expression, age, mental and physical health and ability. Musical instruments are incorporated into our services in an effort to stir the soul, intensify emotions and revivify centuries-old prayer.
