The St. Louis Jewish Mindfulness Center is a community centered around classes, groups, and special events that make the heart more open, the mind more curious and the spirit more joyful through meaningful programming deeply rooted in Jewish tradition.

We at Shaare Emeth Religious School believe strongly in our mission to create positive, inclusive, Jewish, learning experiences for all students and their families.
We strive to provide a safe, nurturing camp environment where children can learn about their world, discover their strengths and feel connected to our community in the context of Reform Judaism.
Becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah is one of the most significant events in a child’s Jewish upbringing, celebrating the child’s readiness to take on the blessings and responsibilities of a Jewish adult.
Shaare Emeth strives to fulfill the Jewish value of gemilut chasadim, acts of lovingkindness, by recognizing and responding with compassion and love to significant moments of both joy and pain in the lives of Shaare Emeth members.
We are involved in a variety of projects and programs that benefit the needs of our larger St. Louis Community. We seek to help alleviate poverty and hunger, fight injustice, care for those in need, protect the environment and bring peace.
As people of faith we have a mandate to bring our values into the public arena and we are proud that we devote our time advocating for many of the social justice values in which we believe.
