NEW NAME, SAME SYNAGOGUE

After 18 months in our beautiful new building, we have a new name. While remaining a community of shevet achim, dwelling together, "Island Synagogue" suits us. It says as simply as possible what and where we are; a welcoming community open to all Jews. There are no prerequisites to worship, study and experience the richness of Jewish life with us. Come and see for yourself!

WELCOME TO OUR COMMUNITY!

Island Synagogue blends the warmth of traditional Judaism with a whole-hearted acceptance of everyone. We “shevet achim,” dwell together, as Seattle’s most diverse congregation. Many of us have returned to tradition and now join in friendship with other families, retired couples and singles in a rich community life filled with prayer, study and “chesed,” acts of kindness. Please visit us in our new building, home to Mercer Island's Orthodox congregation for all Jews.

Thursday Mornings, September 8th through October 27th 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.

Zumba is perfect for everybody and every body. Zumba takes the "work" out of workout, mixing low- and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party. Once the Latin and World rhythms take over, you'll see why Zumba® Fitness classes are like “exercise in disguise.”

A total workout, combining all elements of fitness – cardio, muscle conditioning, balance and flexibility, boosted energy—and a serious dose of awesome!

We are fortunate to have Jessica Low as our Zumba teacher


Jessica is a choreographer, dancer, actor, singer, director and youth educator in musical theatre. Jessica received the 2014 Gregory Award (recognizing contributions to Seattle Theatre) for Outstanding Choreography; you may have seen Jessica’s work recently in The Sound of Music at the 5th Avenue Theatre, and productions at Seattle Musical Theatre and Village Theatre. She has taught Zumba at Island Synagogue for a year.

Special early 8-class series rate is only $40 (that’s just $5 per class!) Drop-ins are $7 per class.
