Washington Heights Congregation ("The Bridge Shul")


The Washington Heights Congregation is a diverse, welcoming, and family-friendly Modern Orthodox synagogue. Its diversity is reflected in the range of ages, backgrounds, and occupations of those who attend our services.  Worship is taken seriously with a minimum of talking, while socializing takes place at our weekly cholent or ice cream kiddush and communal Shabbat meals.
