About Us



Welcome to our La Crosse Jewish community!

We are seniors, boomers, millennials, Generation X,Y Zers and Alphas.

We are families, couples, individuals.​

We were born Jewish, chose to be Jewish, are on the path to becoming Jewish, live with Jewish people we love.

We are singers, listeners, teachers, learners, pray-ers, do-ers.

Come meet the CSOA family.

When we gather to worship… when we learn together at a class… when we volunteer in the community… when we unite to stand up for social justice… when we get together to enjoy one another’s company and socialize.

Become part of something special here in the Coulee Region. Help us create meaningful Jewish experiences for you and for our entire community. Find your Jewish home with us. We look forward to welcoming you.

A Welcoming Philosophy

The CSOA community is all-inclusive and invites everyone to join us for services.

CSOA is a member of the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ).  The URJ prides itself on welcoming all Jews and the important people in their lives, regardless of their prior Jewish affiliation, their gender or sexual orientation, the faith of their extended family, or any disability. We work hard to be a community mindful of the idea that each and every individual is created in the image of God, and believe that welcoming all Jews and their families strengthens the Jewish people.  We invite you to visit CSOA to experience our special Jewish community for yourself!

CSOA is a fully-inclusive congregation that welcomes and supports individuals from all backgrounds.  We welcome children from interfaith families and encourage sensitivity from our entire community to support our children even if they choose not to become Jewish themselves.  Additionally, our Rabbi performs weddings for interfaith couples and LGBTQ couples.
