Hebrew Congregation has had a rich history of inclusion since its founding in 1796. Spanish Jews escaping oppression from the Inquisition found a safe haven here in the Caribbean.
It is that feeling of welcome and hospitality that we continue to instill here in our synagogue over 200 years later. Today, our membership reflects both the history and diversity of St. Thomas. Members come from all walks of like and many different religious backgrounds and ethnicities.
As a congregation, we welcome Jewish families in all their diversity, including interfaith families, LGBTQ couples with or without children, Jewish singles and single parents, and Jews of color. In addition, while we identify as a reform congregation, Jews of all denominations should feel welcome worshipping with us.
Finally, as a Synagogue located in a tropical destination, we embrace an eclectic combination of permanent members, off-island members, and visitors, all of whom add to the culture of our historic synagogue and congregation.
We look forward to welcoming you to Hebrew Congregation where you can add a new voice, and another source of energy, to our warm and open-minded Jewish environment.
We hope you have come to learn, teach, study, and pray next to all of us.
Rabbi Michael E. Harvey
