Shir Hadash is a Synagogue, Educational Institute and Israel Advocacy Center dedicated to:

Inspiring Jewish identity through study and action that is joyous, passionate about ethics and inspired with hesed; Encouraging the love and respect of every Jew and the pursuit of Jewish unity; The rebuilding of Israel, physically and spiritually, so that the Jewish people may best fulfill our universal mission of improving the world.
Our Location

Shir Hadash activities take place in Beit Natan, our new building dedicated to the memory of JJ (נתן יוסף) Greenberg, located at #1 Yakov Rubin Street, overlooking the beautiful “Moon Grove” Parkland on the border of the German Colony and Talbiya neighborhoods of Jerusalem. Located in the heart of Jerusalem’s English speaking population, in close proximity to hotels, and nestled amidst the city’s premier cultural landmarks, this site is perfectly suited to enable Shir Hadash to fulfill its mission of impacting the entire Jewish world.

Additional activities take place in our Jonathan Pear Educational farm just outside of Rosh Pina in Israel’s North, as well as at our Shir Hadash on Emek branch located inside the Ahim Hasid building at Emek Refaim #47.

Help Us Be

A Caring Community

The strength of our community is directly related to the strength of the connection between our members. Staying up to date on what's new in the lives of your Shir Hadash friends -- who may have just given birth or is celebrating a simcha, or God forbid who is ill or might have suffered a loss in the family - is thus an essential element in building our shared community.
