Society Hill Synagogue

About Us:

We Are:
.... and unaffiliated with any official denomination. To create our urban Jewish community, SHS offers a vibrant mixture of traditional and new.

We welcome traditional conservative Jews - and gay families, families of mixed faith, Jews of patrilineal descent and everyone else with a stake in the future of Judaism.

Our services are egalitarian but based on conservative liturgy; our successful, professional membership is the most open-minded you'll find. We defy categories and labels.

No lavish palace at this address! We focus on the simple beauty of Jewish practice, learning and life.

From innovative seder ideas to multi-generational services with songs the whole family enjoys, we look for surprising ways to connect with our heritage.

Kids love SHS! Our adult members still remember the festivals they enjoyed in Hebrew school, and our playschool is famous throughout the city.

We're all about family and community. Our leaders and members will always take time to help when you're in need.

Our congregation is one of the best kept secrets in Philadelphia... and now you're in on it. Take a look around our site, and consider becoming part of the liveliest Jewish community around.
