Religious Philosophy

As a Conservative synagogue, Congregation Ner Tamid combines a commitment to the past with an appreciation of the demands of the present and of the future. We are very proud that men and women share, equally, all religious honors and obligations. The emphasis of our egalitarian service is on learning the richness of our tradition through participation. Our ritual practices meet the spiritual needs of our congregants while balancing the diverse needs of our community.

We support our congregants during all life cycle occasions by offering resources for events including child naming, Bar/Bat mitzvah, marriage, burial and Yahrzeit.
