Sim Shalom is an Online Jewish Universalist Synagogue- the Founding synagogue of Jewish Universalism- liberal in thought and traditional in liturgy.
We are an unaffiliated and pluralistic Jewish community, always evolving and organically growing. We offer daily online synagogue services and welcome everyone to our community from around the world!
We are Jewish Universalist. As envisioned by it's founder Rabbi Steven Blane, Jewish Universalism teaches that one’s religion is not the sole and exclusive source of truth and that God equally chose all nations to be lights unto the world. We reject the concept of a God that would choose a favorite child.
We can accomplish “Tikkun Olam” by our unconditional acceptance of each other’s peaceful doctrines and through G’milut Chasadim (Acts of Loving Kindness).
We welcome and nurture everyone in every way- into all of our rituals and into our hearts.
Our liturgy is fully participatory- you see everything on your computer screen! And our siddurim (prayerbooks) and prayers are transliterated into English so everyone can join in joyous song and prayer. We have no dues or building fund.
We are a Not For Profit 501(c)(3) Corp. and we welcome contributions.
Rabbi Blane and a growing community of JSLI Ordained rabbis are available for all life cycle ceremonies- Weddings, Funerals, Brit Shaloms, Baby Namings, Simchat Bat’s, Bar and Bat Mitzvah training and officiating at their services.
