Welcome to Congregation Shaarey Tefilla!

Congregation Shaarey Tefilla (CST), a United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism affiliate, combines full egalitarianism with a commitment to traditional Judaism. Currently just under 200 households, CST values warmth and intimacy over size. Our rabbi strives to maintain a relationship with every congregant. CST dates its history back to 1870 and the formation of Sharah Tefilo on Indianapolis South Side. Later other congregations were organized and ultimately in 1992, all were merged into CST and established Shaarey Tefilla, with a young vibrant spirit establishing the programs and services that are an important part of the life of our congregants.
