A wonderful spirit is alive at The Community Synagogue. Here you will find warmth and joy, community and purpose. The Community Synagogue is Port Washington’s largest Reform congregation—a place of openness to all, where each person can engage, and where comfort and caring matter.

  • Connect!


    The Community Synagogue is a place where people connect with the spirit and values of Judaism. We connect with each other to create a warm and caring family where every member is important.


    A place for learning together and teaching our children to deepen a sense of meaning and purpose in their lives.

  • A place for sharing simchas (joys) with family and friends.


    Creating sacred and inspiring worship experiences that enrich our spiritual lives both personally and communally.


    Supporting the State of Israel as a pluralistic, culturally diverse, democratic Jewish state; and supporting Jews and the Reform movement around the world.



    Instilling a solid foundation of Jewish connection in our young people, and empowering them to be a positve force in the world.
