Engagement. So easy. Anytime.
Touro Synagogue is an engaged community. We engage with each other within the walls of our synagogue and with each other and the New Orleans community outside of our walls. There are countless ways that you can engage– once, once in awhile, or on-going. We are committed to supporting your involvement with us in ways that feel just right to you. There is always something going on and we hope you will get involved with us! We look forward to engaging with you!
How can I get involved?
It’s easy to be involved at Touro. We hope the “SignUp” button on our website, bulletins, and t-mails will make engagement easy for you.
You can click on the SignUp anytime to see what’s happening that you might want to be a part of.
Check T-mail. Each week the current events are highlighted. It’s never too late to hop on board and engage with others.

What’s going on?
Whether you want to engage in an activity once in a while or you would like to have a regular way to connect with others through activities in our community, there is an engagement opportunity available. Here is a list of things currently going on in our community. The list is not comprehensive and can be added to at any time.
