Welcome to the Indianapolis Jewish Community!

 

Our Jewish community takes its lead from the values and vision of our Biblical ancestors Abraham and Sarah's tent, which was open on four sides to welcome all who approached. Today in Indianapolis, there is room under our big tent for you!

 

We seek to welcome, reach, and serve everyone interested in finding Jewish meaning and community, including those from intermarried households, the unaffiliated, LGBTQ+ individuals, young adults, families, our immigrant communities, and other underserved populations. We celebrate the diversity of today’s Jewish individuals and households and leave behind assumptions about what Jews look like or how families are configured.
