- The Bolton Street Synagogue is an open Jewish community rooted in tradition. We are dedicated to fostering Jewish culture, learning, and prayer in a participatory and intimate environment. We foster an atmosphere of joyful Jewish observance and culture, characterized by openness and informality. All ages are celebrated and welcomed and we try to create a sense of belonging, personal support, and family. We value participation, make decisions democratically, and attempt to ensure that the voices of members are heard. We place a high priority on providing a quality Jewish education for our children. We strive to develop programs to meet the continuing educational desires of all our members. We embrace Jewish traditions while being open to new interpretations of religious expression.
