The Jewish community in Walla Walla dates back to the mid-1800s and has a lovely small synagogue. Presently, the congregation numbers about 30 families and serves as the synagogue for the Jewish students of Whitman College. It is affiliated with the Union for Reform Judaism.
In recent years, the Jewish community has experienced renewed interest and activity. Services are held the first Friday of every month, and the major holidays are celebrated. Services are led by community members, other lay leaders and visiting rabbis. A Hebrew school for congregation members’ children is held on Sunday mornings September–May.
Occasional films, speakers, and musical events are offered at nearby Whitman College as a part of Whitman’s Hillel-Shalom group activities.
