About The Brotherhood Synagogue
The Brotherhood Synagogue בית אחים, located on Gramercy Park, is the largest Jewish congregation in downtown New York City. It is an independent, inclusive community -- unaffiliated with, but following, the Conservative tradition. This combination allows the Synagogue to honor the spiritual and ethical heritage of the Jewish faith and celebrate the deep commitment and diversity of its membership. Founded in 1954, the extraordinarily diverse congregation has been involved in interfaith and social justice activities from its inception and has had consistent and dedicated lay and clerical leadership. Brotherhood is a very special place - the beautiful, warm, and welcoming atmosphere provides a home for many Synagogue activities, meaningful spaces for prayer and celebrations, education for both adults and children of all ages, classes for adults, social outreach and other programs which support and enhance the community.
