"Bais Abe" is a warm, welcoming and inclusive modern Orthodox synagogue led by Rabbi Hyim Shafner located in the University
City Loop area of St. Louis, close to Washington University. The community combines observance, passionate prayer and deep
Torah study with creativity, openness and activism. We offer many opportunities for exploration and enrichment, including
Shabbat services, weekday morning minyan, family shabbatons, weekly study sessions, a lively Lunch and Learn series,
student hospitality programs and a junior congregation, and we are home to the St. Louis Women's Tefillah Group. Individuals
and families of all backgrounds and levels of observance are welcome.
