A garden for
the Jewish soul



String of Pearls is a Reconstructionist congregation in Princeton. We are a diverse and inclusive group, and welcome all who are willing to commit to the integration of community, worship, study, acts of loving kindness (gemilut hasadim), and repair of the world (tikkun olam).

Our spiritual leader is Rabbi Marsha Friedman. Click on this link to learn more about her and sample some of her teachings.

Our Mission

Princeton Reconstructionist Synagogue: a String of Pearls (PRS/SOP) is a participatory Reconstructionist congregation dedicated to creating a supportive and inclusive Jewish community. We explore the evolving nature of Jewish life within the framework of Judaism’s enduring values. We affirm the concept of mitzvah as obligation by acting on these values through the practices of torah (learning), avodah ( service), g’milut hasadim (acts of kindness), and community.

As progressive American Jews, we are committed to challenging and being challenged by Jewish traditions for the enrichment of our own lives and for the perpetuation of our bond, and our children’s bond, with our heritage. By engaging with these traditions, we seek to stimulate our intellects, uplift our souls, and help repair the world.
