The South Philadelphia Shtiebel* is a Jewish community initiative in South Philadelphia that is grounded in tradition and fueled by the spirit of the new, and which empowers its community members to be active participants in Jewish life, and Torah learning.
The Shtiebel is a shul but it’s not just any shul. It is only in its first few months, and it is already also a community center, buzzing with spirited Jewish learning, kids playing, new friendships forming, and lively prayer services. It’s a radically accessible space, where both lifetime shul-goers and people who haven’t set foot in a synagogue in twenty years feel comfortable. And it’s a genuinely unique space, a space rooted in halacha, or Jewish law, and also a home for emergent ideas. 


All Events

Imagine this: A storefront on East Passyunk Avenue, a dynamic and busy corridor full of restaurants, boutiques, and shops. One of the storefronts is the South Philadelphia Shtiebel, and with its large and inviting windows, passersby often knock to say hello, to ask about Jewish life, to make connections, to learn together or come to a service. The Shtiebel--a place for gathering, a synagogue, and so much more-- only in its first few months, is already full of regular learning, kids playing, spirited prayer, and all kinds of conversation and community building.
