With historic roots and a progressive heart, Touro Synagogue is a community that is filled with beautiful contradictions – a grand, historic sanctuary and an intimate, embracing chapel; an active group of knowledgeable sages and a vibrant young adult community; a love of enduring Jewish traditions and a drive for spiritual innovation and forward motion; a commitment to the inner life of our congregational family and a constant energetic force that engages with the renewal of greater New Orleans. Please join us as we work together, making Touro Synagogue a place of transformative prayer, expansive thought, fearless engagement, and love.
Touro Synagogue welcomes and values every individual and family who is seeking a connection to Jewish life and community. We rejoice in the presence of interfaith families, Jews of color, LGBTQ+ folk, those with differing abilities and learning styles, and every human expression of the Divine image. If you or someone you know is in need of additional support to find your way into Touro, please contact our office at (504) 895-4843.
