We are a diverse and emerging community learning Jewish wisdom and tradition in South Seattle. For over 40 years Beit Hashofar has been a voice for Mashiach in the Puget Sound. Our community forms a safe and non-confrontational environment where Jews and non-Jews of varied affiliation enter into open minded dialogue. Interfaith couples have also enjoyed a service which engages both partners equally. We're a group of families and singles seeking an authentic and vibrant Jewish expression.

We are a "Messianic" Jewish community. Messianic Judaism is not identified by specific practice or custom. Some in the movement are seeking less traditional approaches to Jewish life while others attempt to engage Jewish halakha, implementing traditional patterns of prayer and ritual observance. Our Synagogue exists comfortably within a more traditional context and yet feels free to experiment with innovative approaches to liturgy and Jewish expression. A Judaism truly nourished by the life and teachings of the only Mashiach is a Torah observant Judaism. While our movement is primarily one of baalei teshuvah (those returning to Jewish observance) we are steadily moving towards our high calling; a life reflecting Jewish law and tradition.

Our services are typically every Shabbat, Saturday at 10:30 a.m. During the summer, we have a rotating schedule of Friday night/Shabbat morning services.  We meet for services at 13001 37th Ave S, Tukwila, Washington. The service is about two hours long. The liturgy and music are in Hebrew and in English, and are user friendly. The focus of our service is a blend of liturgy (sung in traditional nusach) and Torah understanding for our time.  We are a diverse community, everyone is welcome.

If you are wondering what you should wear in synagogue, we prefer for people to dress up for the occasion with modest attire.
