Main Sanctuary 652 Lexington Avenue at 55th Street (map & directions)
Central Synagogue is a kehillah kedoshah - a holy community - offering a wide range of opportunities for involvement at all stages of life. From daily morning worship to lunchtime organ concerts and Jewish study to stimulating evening lectures to Sunday morning social justice opportunities and so much more, there is a place for you in our community. Welcome.
“For 142 years, we have occupied not only this very street corner, but we have been a pillar of Reform Judaism and embodiment of the understanding that all Jews are responsible for all other Jews. This synagogue needs not only to take care of our own, but to be responsible for the wellbeing of all people who are part of the constellation of humanity, part of the fabric of the city, and part of the strength of this nation.”
Rabbi Rubinstein, Shabbat sermon, June 2012
