Sha’ar Zahav, 290 Dolores St.
San Francisco, CA 94103 United States

CSZ's neighborly Shabbat morning service is more like a minyan, a small community gathering. We sing, pray, read and discuss Torah together. And ask questions and share ideas in a spiritual and progressive celebration. No prior experience is necessary. Services begin at 10:00am and end at 11:30am. We would like our services to be accessible to those with chemical sensitivities and allergies, and therefore support a fragrance-free environment.
