Welcome To Shaarei Tefillah!

We are a Modern Orthodox synagogue located in beautiful Newton Centre, Massachusetts, in the greater Boston area. Our active and energetic shul aspires to provide an inclusive, friendly, and participatory atmosphere conducive to personal religious growth through Tefillah, Torah study, Chesed, Tzedek, Ahavat Yisrael, and building a supportive community of values and meaning. As our Sages taught us so long ago: The world stands on three things: Torah, Avodah, uGemilut Chasadim. At Shaarei, we too stand on — and just as importantly, we stand for — these three foundational pillars.

Rabbi Benjamin J. Samuels
