Our mission is to create a spiritually uplifting tefillah (prayer service), grounded in a commitment to halakhah (Jewish law) and to maximize the participation of both women and men. The minyan is a vibrant, friendly community that welcomes families, singles, students, professionals and more.

Temple B'nai Brith

The Orthodox Minyan at Harvard Hillel is a dynamic Modern Orthodox community that brings together young families; single and married professionals; and students at Harvard, MIT, and other local universities.

Led by Rabbi Liza Stern, Congregation Eitz Chayim (tree of life) is best characterized by its warm, haimish atmosphere and meaningful engagement with Jewish traditions. As a community, we celebrate Shabbat and holidays together, share life cycle events, and promote life-long Jewish learning through our thriving religious school and rich adult education programming. We are a non-affiliated congregation that often worships creatively, and we work together to make new, fresh ideas happen. Community at Eitz Chayim has always been intimate and organic.

Temple Beth Shalom/Tremont Street Shul

Temple Beth Shalom, also known as the Tremont Street Shul, is a warm, friendly, traditional synagogue located near the center of Cambridge, Massachusetts. We embrace people of all ages from a wide variety of backgrounds, and we welcome newcomers to feel at home in the shul.


Rabbi Getzel Davis founded ZIVUG on a simple idea: If you take a portion of the time that you will spend on wedding planning to envision your marriage, you are more likely to have a longer and healthier partnership. When many ZIVUG couples became parents, he founded the ZIVUG parents' groups - helping new Mamas, Papas, Imas, and Tattis envision their new roles as the parents of Jewish children. In addition to his work with couples, Rabbi Getzel provides spiritual counseling for individuals as part of ZIVUG's pastoral care services.

Havurat Shalom

Havurat Shalom is a small, pioneering, egalitarian Jewish community founded in 1968. We are a lay-led congregation where people come to pray, celebrate, and grapple with Jewish texts and traditions and work for social justice.

Open Beit Midrash

A Beit Midrash is a traditional house of Jewish text study. At Open Beit Midrash, we aim to create space for a blend of text study, community building and identity formation. We run programs throughout the year, hosted in different spaces across Cambridge and Somerville.

The Cambridge Minyan

The Cambridge Minyan fosters vibrant traditional egalitarian davening in Cambridge, and builds community through prayer and other programs. Cambridge Minyan is entirely volunteer-run and member-supported. Our community is growing, and we hope you will join us.
