a reform-style Jewish congregation
The Merkaz Congregation joined our campus in 2015. They are a close-knit community that follows a progressive, Reform-style, and inclusive path, while maintaining a healthy respect for traditional Jewish practice. Merkaz means “center” and Ha-Iyr means “the city.” They meet several times a month for Shabbat services and education.

A Stepping Stone Foundation
early education opportunities for those in need
A Stepping Stone Foundation was born out of Shadow Rock back in 1989. It provides stepping stones to create success through education for children and families who have limited opportunities. They offer family literacy programs, tuition-free preschool, and other community partnering. While they do not have office space on our campus, they host some events here, and we are proud to maintain our ties with them.
