"Bais Abe" is a warm, welcoming, inclusive modern Orthodox synagogue led by Rabbi Garth Silberstein located in the University City area of St. Louis, close to Washington University. The community combines observance, passionate prayer and deep Torah study with creativity, openness and activism. Surrounded by stately, quiet neighborhoods and adjacent to the Delmar Loop, one of the most exciting urban oases in the country, Bais Abe is the perfect balance of urban energy and suburban calm. Individuals and families of all backgrounds and levels of observance are welcome.  For more information on upcoming events click HERE.
