About this Community

CENTRAL SYNAGOGUE IS ONE OF THE OLDEST REFORM CONGREGATIONS in New York City. It provides a joyous opportunity for Jews of diverse backgrounds to come together for prayer, spiritual renewal, and community in a warm, enriching environment. Sensitive to the evolving interests and needs of the Reform community, Central Synagogue explores both traditional and alternative modes of prayer.

Central Synagogue's Early Childhood Programs include both the May Family Nursery School and the Parenting Center. Both the Nursery School and the Parenting Center provide a nurturing, healthy Jewish learning environment in which each child is encouraged to reach optimal development in his or her pre-kindergarten years. Just as we believe that cognitive, social-emotional, and pre-academic development are crucial in the early years, we are convinced that the teaching of Jewish values, traditions, and ritual are equally vital. Central Synagogue's Hebrew school offers a dynamic and engaging environment for learning and prides itself on the quality and diversity of its teaching faculty.

In all of our work with children, making connections to the home and partnering with parents is essential to our mission. We welcome you and your children to further enliven our vibrant community at Central Synagogue.
