Progressive Judaism in Florence
Shir Hadash is an egalitarian Progressive congregation. We encourage equal participation of men and women of all races, national origins, sexual orientations and physical, mental or emotional disabilities. We are happy to welcome as guests persons visiting Florence and the surrounding area. Jews from other denominations are also very welcome to attend, as are persons of other religious faiths.
What is Progressive Judaism?
Shir Hadash is a member of the World Union for Progressive Judaism (WUPJ), the international umbrella organization of the Reform, Liberal, Progressive and Reconstructionist movements, serving 1,200 congregations with 1.8 million members in more than 45 countries.
Progressive Judaism is rooted in the Bible, especially the teachings of the Hebrew Prophets.
Coronavirus: In line with the new governmental decree and the advice from the Health Ministry, Shir Hadash activities are cancelled until further notice. Unfortunately we will not be doing the community Seder this year.
Given the fluidity of the situation, the calendar will be updated as fast as is humanly possible.

In addition (when there is a rabbi):
Talmud Torah and Havdalah for youngsters
Tots Group for the youngest

We welcome visitors, Jewish and not, to our services, but ask that you please contact us beforehand for security reasons.
