Welcome to the Young Israel of the West Side

As you peruse our pages, you will discover a unique community on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Our mantra is “Building a Sense of Community in Manhattan.” In our shul, you will feel welcome, wanted and at-home. Our gorgeous old-European style main sanctuary seats 1200 (800 men & 400 women) and certainly contributes to awe-inspiring and uplifting traditional services. Our community is diverse, comprised of singles, young married couples, young married families, established families as well as a few “older-statesman” that have been with us for many years. Our mission is the study of Torah on the highest levels, engaging our many children of all ages in the beauty of our heritage and enhancing and facilitating social interactions of congregants through our various clubs and innovative programming. Let the Young Israel community embrace you by making our home your home today. We look forward to seeing you in shul.
