About Our Congregation
We are lucky to be part of a living tradition that evolves along with our changing times. At HCS we lean Reconstructionist, and encourage living a mitzvah-centered life over a self-centered one. With a spirit of joy, music, and creativity we bring more light, more love, more healing and more justice to the world.
We celebrate diversity in our community and embrace people of all races, gender expressions and sexual identifications. All members of multi-faith families will find warmth and belonging at HCS. We welcome the wide spectrum of beliefs that exist among us, uplifting our differences along with our points of connection.
