Welcome to Congregation Ner Shalom
Congregation Ner Shalom is a warm and inclusive Jewish community. Drawing from our Reconstructionist roots and the soulfulness of Jewish Renewal, we embrace Judaism through ritual, social justice, music, learning and laughter. Wander this website and find what speaks to you.
We hold the Jewish community of Pittsburgh in our loving embrace during this terrible time. We offered our hearts and our prayers in a candlelight vigil on October 27, and we offer them still. You can revisit the vigil on Facebook by clicking here or read Reb Irwin’s recent words on fear by clicking here.
