• Engage!


    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.

  • Educate!


    The Community Synagogue is a place of lifelong learning. By learning together and teaching our children, we connect to each other, to Judaism and to the best in ourselves. 

  • Come celebrate with the Community Synagogue.

  • Grow!


    The Community Synagogue is a place to grow.  With our hearts, our minds, our souls and our might, we grow individually and as a congregation, creating a kehillah k'doshah—a sacred community—of which we are all a part.  

  • EDUCATION / TORAH – Providing meaningful Jewish learning experiences to nurture an environment of lifelong learning, as we breakground on the "Pardes," outdoor classroom.

  • Israel

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


  • Youth

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