Shabbat • שבת
Erev Shabbat services begins on Fridays at 6:15 p.m. and on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month at 9:30 a.m.
We are a Conservative Lay-Lead Jewish congregation located in the beautiful hills of San Luis Obispo. We encourage personal, spiritual and intellectual growh and take tremendous pride in our reputation as a warm and caring multi-generational family synagogue.
Typically on the third Friday of each month, we celebrate with a Community Vegetarian Potluck. We hope you will join us.
Meet Rabbi Chorny
Rabbi Daniel Chorny was raised in Bogotá, Colombia. He went on to complete his undergraduate education with distinction at the Pennsylvania State University, where he earned his B.S. in Business Management. He then completed a year of Torah Lishmah study at the Conservative Yeshiva in Jerusalem, where he met his wife, Hillary Chorny. While attending the Jewish Theological Seminary, where Rabbi Chorny received his rabbinic ordination and an M.A in Talmud and Rabbinics in 2014, he worked as a rabbinic intern at Congregation Etz Chaim of East Rockaway, NY. He also served as student rabbi at Jewish Senior Services of Fairfield, CT, and completed a unit of Clinical Pastoral Education with Metropolitan Jewish Health System Hospice and Palliative Care of New York, NY. Rabbi Chorny comes to us after serving as student rabbi at Congregation Sons of Israel in Amsterdam, NY. Currently, Rabbi Chorny teaches Mikraot Gedolot at the American Jewish University.
