Congregation Sherith Israel welcomes everyone, regardless of background, level of observance or Jewish knowledge.

Our well-attended, participatory services are meaningful, warm, and welcoming and feature inspiring Divrei Torah and beautiful singing, followed by community kiddushes. We offer extensive programming, including education for youth and adults, social events, and community service.

The most important aspect of Sherith Israel is our strong community, united in commitment to Judaism, the State of Israel, and each other.

A message from Rabbi Saul:

Baruch Habbah! Welcome to Sherith Israel!

Once you step inside you’ll find a welcoming and diverse community of individuals and families who come together on weekly (and daily) basis to celebrate Shabbat and Chagim, to study Torah, and to engage together as a community.

With the flavor of Orthodoxy unique to Nashville, you will find our atmosphere to be, on the one hand comfortably traditional, and on the other hand, profoundly relevant and engaging. So if you are new to town or just visiting, I invite you to stop by and when you come in, please find me so that I can formally welcome you to Nashville and to Sherith Israel.
- Rabbi Saul Strosberg

A message from our shul President:

Welcome to Sherith Israel!

Our Shul is a truly special place, a community open to all regardless of religious background, level of observance or knowledge. We are a diverse congregation, yet we are united in our love for the Jewish People and the State of Israel.

We are fortunate to have truly outstanding leadership in Rabbi Saul and Cantor Lieberman as well as our many volunteers. I hope you will join us for Shabbat services, get acquainted over a delicious Kiddush lunch, attend one of our concerts or educational programs, and become part of our community.

- Evan Rittenberg

Our Mission

Our mission is to live lives with meaning by bridging the divide between the traditions which we inherited and the world which we encounter and to enable the Jewish way of life to thrive as we embrace Am Yisrael with open arms.

Our mission is to be an open community to our fellow Jews and all people, by welcoming all who enter our doors without judgment, bringing the beauty of the Torah into the lives of whoever is interested through learning programs and sharing our most uplifting as well as our most difficult moments.

Our mission concludes with passion. We have to love what we do, love what we stand for, believe deeply that all we do is for God, for the Torah, and for the Jewish people.
