Congregation Shaarei Tefilla

Founded in 1981, Congregation Shaarei Tefilla was the first Orthodox Synagogue in Nevada with the main purpose of providing Jewish education and services to all Jews regardless of their background or level of observance - without any judgments.


Congregation Shaarei Tefilla operates within the framework of an Orthodox Congregation and under the auspices of the Union of Orthodox Congregations of America.  As of 2017, the Canor for this congregation is Lola Rivera.
