Progressive, Conservative Jewish Synagogue for Escondido Jewish Community

At Ner Tamid, a short distance south of Escondido, you will find a welcoming, progressive synagogue in the Conservative tradition.   We welcome people from all walks of life to join  in "bringing us closer to Torah and to each other."

Rabbi Sammy Seid, a recent graduate of the Zeigler Jewish school of rabbinical studies, a native of Southern California, is here, as we all are, to welcome you with open arms, love and support, wherever your station of Judaism is or if you are just now beginning your journey is studying the possibilities that Judaism holds for you. You can count on Rabbi Sammy Seid to inspire us in our tradition and in "Menchkite" - human decency and good will.

Our membership draws from a very broad segment of the American and International communities, with both Jewish and non-Jewish origins (as we are the home to many Jewish converts) and inter-faith couples.

We welcome all without regard to personal lifestyles. 

We are a completely egalitarian congregation with no "mechitzah" or separation of activities by sex.  You will see people of all ages, both male and female, actively involved in Torah, Talmud, as professional clergy and as lay activists in the congregation.

You will meet many fellow congregants from Escondido.  Housing and community preferences are one thing, but choice of a Jewish congregation to be a part of is another.   Escondido residents come to us for our child and adult education programs,  for inspiring prayer and communal gatherings, for the good cheer, fellowship and out of a sense of Jewish peoplehood. 

In all honesty, everyone has their own unique reasons for joining and why they make the trip from Escondido.  But once here, each and every one finds a family, friendship and a sense of coming home spiritually.

We strongly believe that anyone from Escondido who is looking for a Jewish home will find one here at Ner Tamid.

Welcome to Ner Tamid, our "Eternal Light" in San Diego North County!
