Shaare Zedek is a multi-generational, egalitarian Conservative congregation on the Upper West Side of Manhattan embracing a traditional approach to contemporary Judaism. We pride ourselves on a long and rich history of providing a warm, informal, observant community that is accessible to Jews of all ages and backgrounds. Services are led by members of the community, who infuse life at Shaare Zedek with their talents, creativity and spirit.

A new membership year has begun at Shaare Zedek, in which we are greatly looking forward to welcoming Rabbi Jonah Geffen as our new rabbi beginning on August 1st. We invite you to join us in prayer, learning, introspection, and celebration both during the upcoming chaggim and in the months that follow.

Membership renewal forms and High Holiday ticket information has been mailed to all members. Those forms, as well as applications for new membership, are also available for download here.

Please take the time to complete all membership and High Holiday ticket forms by August 24th. Of course, feel free to contact the synagogue office with any questions!
