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

We welcome you to explore your Jewish identity and the Jewish holidays with us. Our calendar is packed with an abundance of activities, including Shabbat and holiday celebrations, along with opportunities for learning, and connecting with community.
