Zion. An Eretz Yisraeli community

in Jerusalem

Come As You Are

Welcome

Zion is an emerging community of Israeli Jews of all backgrounds, beliefs, customs, and practices, gathering together to re-dream Jerusalem as a meeting point for all. Zion provides the opportunity for many to pray and celebrate Judaism in a way that feels authentic and relevant to them, oftentimes for the first time in their lives, within a community deeply rooted in tradition and Jewish heritage.  Men and women, Orthodox and secular, Reform and Conservative, Sepharadi and Ashkenazi are all welcome to participate and lead in an egalitarian Eretz-Yisraeli community.  

 

Within a few years Zion became a unique inspirational community for Jews and Non-Jews in Israel and around the world, paving the way through prayer, social justice, and study to a Jerusalem of shared Faith and Hope.  

We welcome you to be partners in the building and fulfillment of this vision.

Prayer

Prayer is a central part of the experience of the community of Zion.
