Jewish Reconstructionist Communities Member of
the Jewish


Shir Hadash is an inclusive and egalitarian havurah (an informal, cooperative congregation) affiliated with the Jewish Reconstructionist Communities. Our members include about 60 households and represent widely diverse backgrounds and points of view. For more than 25 years we have grown in our knowledge and understanding of Judaism.

We have shaped a warm, caring community for members of all ages. We invite you to get acquainted. We meet weekly for Shabbat and holidays from September through June, usually in the Social Hall of the Lutheran Church of the Newtons in Newton Centre. Our services include a variety of formats: breakfast-study sessions, rabbi led, member led and Friday night potlucks. Please consult our calendar.

Shir Hadash looks forward to our second year with Rabbi Rachel Dvash Schoenfeld as our rabbi. We are also excited to engage a cantorial intern, Sarah Bolts. See our rabbi/cantorial intern page.
