Chavurah B’Yachad, located in Salt Lake City, Utah, is an inclusive, egalitarian, community-oriented, lay-led Reconstructionist Jewish congregation. Reconstructing Judaism is a progressive Jewish movement that approaches both life and Judaism with a deep consideration of the past and a desire to create and share new ways of being Jewish in the present.
We are an active, socially engaged, tight-knit congregation — passionate about repairing the world (Tikkun Olam) and seeking justice for all.
Our members consist of Jews by birth or by choice, single or part of family units, inter-faith families, and people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
We strive to create an accessible and spiritually nourishing community, both within and outside of the CBY congregation. All are welcome at our services and events.Prior to then Covid 19 pandemic, we held services in the lovely Pepper Chapel at Congregation Kol Ami. We meet once a month for Friday night services, and on alternate Shabbatot mornings for Torah Study. Our Torah Study discussions are facilitated by Dr. Maeera Shreiber. Dr. Shreiber teaches literature and directs Jewish Studies at the University of Utah, and is currently a rabbinical candidate at the American Academy for Jewish Studies.

Founded in 1986, Chavurah B’Yachad is a participatory congregation that provides a setting for the exploration of our Jewish roots and traditions, a forum for intellectual and spiritual growth, and an extended family to celebrate life cycle events. More than thirty years later, this vision challenges and inspires us still.
