Welcome to Congregation Israel of San Antonio
|CISA at St. Andrew||CISA at Patriot Heights|
Our Jewish congregational community strives to provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere along with the holiness and beauty of music and prayer. Our philosophy of Covenantal-Conservative Judaism blends the rituals of Jewish denominational practice with the Torah as our ever present guide.
Together, we strive
- to welcome all who are committed, interested and inquiring and wish to pray and learn, celebrate and mourn together in a Jewish way according to tradition and law;
- to affirm the inherent dignity, honor and integrity of every human being as b'tzelem Elohim, created in God's image; we “welcome all most cordially.”
- to be dedicated to Torah study, deeds and acts of kindness in Godly partnership and observances;
- to work to attain tikkun olam, the healing of the world by first assessing our actions and personal growth through mitzvoth -our actions and by our deeds-and then by transmitting them through action.
