“Separate not thyself from the community.” In keeping with this rabbinic dictum, it is our pleasure to invite you to join our congregation to pray, to study, to meet with friends, or to participate in any of our other synagogue programs. Jewish culture is diverse at Brotherhood, and we offer many “points of entry” so that you may participate however you feel most comfortable and most inspired. Regardless of your age or your level of knowledge, we are confident that you will find countless opportunities to both connect with our community and expand your Jewish identity.
To get to know us better, we encourage you to set up a time to come visit us, to meet some of our staff and members and to learn more about whether Brotherhood is the right synagogue for you and/or your family. While we have some scheduled “open houses,” we also encourage you to call us at any time to set up a personal meeting.
We hope you will join us and experience for yourself the joy of Shabbat, holidays, festivals and the other wonderful occasions that synagogue life at Brotherhood has to offer.
What we offer:
Love of Israel
Our Worship Services express the soul of our congregation. Each Shabbat our community gathers for joyful worship, including prayer, song and Torah. Our diverse community – across all ages, ethnicities, and walks of life – reflects the rich mosaic of New York City and the Jewish people worldwide. Our “open-door policy” for all who wish to pray also attracts a number of visitors each Shabbat.

Our Hebrew School provides a wonderful educational environment for children in grades Kindergarten through Seven. Our main goals are to make Judaism relevant to the lives of our students and to inspire them to serve the Jewish community. We do this by creating educational experiences that engage our students in an authentic quest for tikkun olam (repairing the world) and tikkun ha middot (personal spiritual growth).

Our emphasis on social justice and interfaith dialogue creates closer bonds among the members of our community because we know that the blessing is found both in helping others and in the relationships forged in the process.
Love of Israel
Our love of Israel is supported by a variety of programs throughout the year, including musical performances by Israeli artists, Israeli films, speakers, and organized trips to Israel.
Brotherhood members support one another at challenging times with acts of loving kindness, such as during illness or at the time of the death of a loved one.ﾠ The Chesed Committee organizes visits to the sick, provides support for mourners, and brings educational materials and programming to the community.ﾠ Programs have featured speakers addressing grieving, talking to children about illness and loss, and being a friend to one who is sick.
