Welcome to HCRJ

Houston Congregation for Reform Judaism (HCRJ) has celebrated over 60 years of worship as a Reform Jewish temple in Houston, Texas. Located in the heart of Houston’s Galleria area, HCRJ offers an intimate, vibrant, and inclusive Jewish synagogue with a feeling of warmth and welcoming where Jewish fellowship may flourish. Rabbi Steven Gross has nurtured profound spiritual connections and an engaged community since he began serving our congregation in 2005. Interfaith couples participate in all aspects of Temple life. We welcome you at any of our 6:30 p.m. Friday night Sabbath services. Our innovative religious school is based on a curriculum designed to engage students in dynamic, interactive learning experiences that teach Jewish history and principles through nature, art, cooking and other fun, exciting activities. Classes are held on Sunday mornings.
