The Selah Experience

Selah was born out of a desire to re-imagine Jewish life in South Austin. We seek to create a living Judaism that is experienced through vibrant and soulful prayer, transformative study of Torah, and purposeful engagement with our wider world. We are progressive and yet traditional, informal, creative, and committed to social justice.
