Who We Are

Dorshei Tzedek is a dynamic and growing Reconstructionist congregation in West Newton, Massachusetts, with over 245 member households. We are dedicated to Jewish learning and to ethical Jewish living in the modern world. Our Reconstructionist educational program is committed to making Judaism relevant and meaningful for children as well as adults.  Our community includes people from a wide variety of Jewish backgrounds, as well as interfaith families and people with little or no previous Jewish learning or experience. We embrace one another’s unique points of view. Our membership includes families, couples, and singles of all ages, Jews by birth and Jews by choice (or still choosing). We value and include everyone regardless of age, marital status, income level, or sexual orientation.

Congregation Dorshei Tzedek response to COVID-19

As Dorshei Tzedek takes precautions during the Covid-19 pandemic, our programs have either moved to a virtual or outdoor format. Like the Israelites in the wilderness, challenged by the Power that liberated them from slavery to create a new kind of society, we too are on a journey to foster our community connections, spiritual practice, Jewish learning, and social justice work in new ways. To find out more about classes, Shabbat services, and other programs, please see the menu to the right, and click on the link for each program. This will take you to a page with information about how to access it online.
