Now in its 9th year, The Community Free Synagogue is an alternative to the "bricks and mortar" paid membership model of the ordinary American synagogue. For us "belonging" means participating in the life of our congregation, whose mission is prayer, study and benevolent acts. We comfortably support ourselves through a spirit of volunteerism and by the generosity of the hundreds of households that make C.F.S. their congregational home and our area's largest Jewish congregation. Our music is vibrant, worship uplifting and highly participatory, and our setting relaxed and informal. The are no membership fees or charges for any of our programs or classes.
Traditional Friday Sabbath Eve Dinner is at 6:30 PM every week . There is no charge and reservations are never required!
Worship begins at 7:30 PM each Friday evening.
Torah Study with the rabbi is preceded by a light breakfast each Saturday from 9:30 - 11:30 AM
You're not going to want to miss our gala Purim celebration on Friday, March 14 starting at 6:30PM with dinner, followed at 7:30PM by our hilarious "PowerPoint Purim" Megillah reading, sing-along and Sabbath eve worship. Hummentaschen and coffee to follow!
Our next "Brown Bag Movie Night" in on Thursday evening, March 20 starting at 6:30PM. Pack your dinner- we'll provide the soft drinks. This month, in honor of Purim, we'll be enjoying the comedy classic "The Frisco Kid". Of course, it's free!

Community Free Synagogue Rabbi Bruce Diamond presents a miniature Torah Scroll to Annunciation Greek Orthodox Parish Council President Nick Karas and Vice-President Maria Mourgis on Friday evening, February 7, as a parting gift of appreciation for the church's hospitality. The synagogue used Annunciation's Kontinos Community Hall for the past 7 seven years and has now relocated to larger facilities at the Southwest Florida Masonic Center on Metro Parkway.
On Friday, February 28, we presented a mezzuzah to Tropical Lodge 56. Lodge member David Salo accepted and mounted it on the doorpost at the entrance to our new home at the Southwest Florida Masonic Center.
