Congregation Ner Tamid is an egalitarian Conservative congregation with community of warm and welcoming people who come together to pray, celebrate, learn, and practice Tzedakah. We are a small and haimishe community where people come to help each other through life’s ups and downs and to form life long friendships. We are a mostly adult community but we welcome families with children and invite all children to participate in our service.

Our mission is to meet the diverse spiritual, religious educational and social needs of our members and to further the causes of the Jewish people and the State of Israel. We strive to build unity with our fellow Jews of all persuasions and affiliations and the community at large, in a spirit of love and respect.

We extend an invitation to you to visit our synagogue, to participate in our programs and activities, and to attend Shabbat and Holiday Services. We know that you will find Ner Tamid a place that will make you feel welcome.

Congregation Ner Tamid is affiliated with the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism [USCJ] - Northern California Region.

"Poetry, Prayer, & Passion -

The Story of Jewish Worship"

On three Thursday mornings for our regularly-scheduled Torah Study, we'll take a little detour into the amazing journey of Jewish worship. How did the siddur (prayer book) come to be? How does the Torah influence the way Jews offer praise, petition and thanks? We'll enter the minds of the poets and rabbis who gave us their verbal "sacrifices," and gain new insight into "why Jews do what they do" when they enter the synagogue and pour out their hearts to the Creator.

January 5, 12, and 26*

"Mussar" is a thousand-year-old Jewish tradition that answers the question, "Why should I be Jewish?" with an emphatic "Because Judaism has the power to transform your life for the good!" In this mini-course, we will learn to identify our individual "soul curriculum" and explore pathways for improving every aspect of our lives – work, relationships, mental health, even how we go shopping and tend to our daily needs, all using Jewish texts and teachings that span the centuries.

A four-part introduction to this life-long practice will be held
