About Us

Celebrating our 9th anniversary as an alternative expression of creative but conservative-covenantal Judaism in San Antonio, Texas. In Hebrew “Brit” means covenant, a promise; we act as stewards one to the other in helping Jews become better Jews.

Visitors to our congregation comment on the warmth and friendliness of the people.  After experiencing one of our Shabbat services it is clear to see that the warmth and friendliness of the congregation is a reflection of those same qualities that are so clearly expressed in our leader, Hazzan David Silverstein, and our Music accompanist Rev. David Miron and the members of the Voices of Israel Chorale.

Congregation Israel of San Antonio welcomes everyone,  most cordially from all branches of Judaism, those investigating Judaism and from the community.

Our services and interactive Torah studies provide stimulating discussions and opportunities for learning traditional Judaism and modern applications of it. We are passionate about the instructions given to us in Torah and strive to live blessed and holy lives as children of the Eternal.

To include a name on the Yahrzeit (Remembrance) or Mi Sheberach (Healing) prayer list, please provide names to Hazzan Silverstein at (210) 387-2436 or at (210) 764-0859 by 2:00 PM Wednesdays.  You may also submit a prayer request for healing at the service itself.  Please hand it to the Hazzan prior to services.

If you know someone who is hospitalized and would like to be visited by Hazzan Silverstein, please contact him at the telephone numbers listed above.
