Main Sanctuary 652 Lexington Avenue at 55th Street (map & directions)
Worship at Central Synagogue is spirited, intimate, and meaningful. The services use a mixture of Hebrew and English to be both traditional and approachable. Music is an essential piece of our Reform Jewish worship experience and there are many opportunities to join in song.
“Worship now needs greater accessibility to the front. It involves greater interfacing of all the elements of the service: music, worship, clergy, the congregation. It demands a greater sense of involvement and participation. And more than anything else, to build now demands that you know that you don’t know, that worship and its needs change rapidly and radically.”
Rabbi Rubinstein, Amherst Magazine, Summer 2002
