Our Reform congregation is a caring, active, diverse and inclusive community that explores and experiences all aspects of Jewish life. Located in Westwood, MA, we serve towns across the Rt. 109 corridor. We invite you to join us in prayer, study, to socialize and learn. We offer activities and opportunities for all age groups and levels of participation.
