    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.

Upcoming Events

Calling All Survivors of the Shoah and Their Descendants

On Erev Shabbat, Friday, May 3 at 8 pm we will begin services with special readings and prayers in memory of those murdered in the Shoah (Holocaust) and to honor those who lived through it. When we light our special Shoah menorah, designed by our congregants Gunther Lawrence and Bert Tobin, we will ask all survivors, as well as children or grandchildren of those survivors, to light the six candles in memory of the murdered six million. 

At 9 pm NY State Senator Anna Kaplan will join us to talk about “Responding to the Growth of Anti-Semitism.”

If you are a survivor, or family member of one who is, please come … and if you know someone who should be informed about this evening, please do let them know.

Senator Anna Kaplan


Friday, May 3, 8:00 pm Yom Hashoah Service | 9:00 pm Senator Presentation


Senator Anna Kaplan, Democrat from District 7 in New York, is discussing where the anti-Semitic threats are coming from in the world and here in America, and what the legislative responses are in our State?

The Senator will be speaking following the Erev Shabbat (Friday evening) service, which includes lighting our communal 6-branched Holocaust menorah, with prayers in memory of those who were murdered.
