Congregation Beth Mordecai is a turn of the century synagogue with a majestic design.
Our Sanctuary seats 600 in traditional pews and was re-carpeted recently to provide a floor level lectern enabling all to participate in the Mitzvah of being called to the Torah without any physical restrictions. Our sound system was also partially updated to insure everyone can enjoy the warmth and fulfillment of the High Holy Days, no matter where they sit. We maintain a Kosher Kitchen with a beautifully renovated Safran Social Hall that can accommodate groups from 20 to 100+ for all types of Simchas. We also maintain a lovely Beit Midrash for weekly minyanim seating 20+ with a Full Bema/Ark.
