About Leyv Ha-Ir

Leyv Ha-Ir, Hebrew for Heart of the City, is a small, growing Reconstructionist  Congregation with most activities located at the Ethical Society Building at 1906 S. Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia.

Founded in May 1990, Congregation Leyv Ha-Ir is led by Rabbi Julie Greenberg. Our members come from all branches of Judaism, including Reform, Conservative and Orthodox, and include recent converts to Judaism. Our members include students, professionals, rabbis, singles, couples, and those in traditional and non-traditional families.
