On behalf of the Jewish Federation of Greater Portland and the Portland/SW Washington Jewish community, welcome to this wonderful communal resource guide about Oregon’s Jewish community. We are grateful to Oregon Jewish Life for bringing this important information together in one place.
Portland is home to more than 45,000 Jews, and continues to grow. We are a vibrant Jewish community with programs and services for everyone. Our community has a myriad of wonderful and welcoming syn- agogues, a beautiful Jewish community center, diverse Jewish day schools, an incredible array of senior and social services, Jewish summer camps, adult education programs, and special cultural and social institutions. We have something for you and your entire family – at every stage of life!
Our community continues to evolve to meet the needs for today and tomorrow’s generations. We are a pluralistic and diverse Jewish community. One where you can feel comfortable creating your own Jewish journey.
This resource guide showcases the best we have to offer and we encourage you to take an active part in Greater Portland’s Jewish community. Make the most out of all your Jewish experiences.
