Our Seattle synagogue is an inclusive, progressive, independent Jewish community deeply rooted in the enduring evolving wisdom of our ancient texts and traditions, yet unafraid to borrow and build from other sources in the service of offering a transformative personal spiritual encounter to all who come under our roof. We aren’t your old-school shul!



Bet Alef is not only committed to personal, spiritual transformation, but also the transformation of our communities through commitment to immigration reform, care for the earth, interfaith interaction and peace-building, lifelong learning and education, and diversity and inclusion in both theory and practice.

Bet Alef is not your old-school shul. Although we find deep, enduring wisdom in the ancient Jewish texts, our traditions serve as a springboard for a transformative personal spiritual encounter. We’re something of an outstanding congregation here in Seattle. We’re not  affiliated with any of the established Jewish movements (e.g., Reform, Conservative, etc.). We are an inclusive, progressive Jewish community that borrows and builds from many sources.

We are students of mystical Judaism (also known as Kabbalah) and explorers of the non-dual spiritual path.
Our services include guided and silent meditations. Our wonderful Music Director, Dianna Rose, integrates Ashkenazi, Sephardic, and contemporary songs to our celebrations. We have members who grew up in all different kinds of Jewish homes—and many who grew up in other faiths. We are warmly embracing of all interfaith and LGBTQ individuals and families.

We’re located in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood (housed within Seattle First Baptist Church).
