Now in its 10th year, The Community Free Synagogue is a new and exciting model for the 21st century American synagogue: a thriving spiritual village! We do not sell memberships. The synagogue is an open community resource 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. All of our programs and events, including youth Hebrew and Jewish education, are open to all without fees or solicitations.

"Brown Bag Movie Night" 6:30 Thursday June 23

(click the poster for more information)

"In 1944, in Brooklyn, two Jewish kids become friends. One is from a very conservative family, and the other is more liberal. The issues of importance of tradition, parental expectations and the formation of Israel cause constant friction." (IMDB). Pack you dinner - CFS provides free soft drink and snacks. Open to all and free (of course).
