An independent traditional egalitarian community in Northern Manhattan

As an independent congregation that has long been an anchor of the Jewish community in Washington Heights and Inwood, we have thrived by evolving with our neighborhood and our membership. Today, the congregation is a diverse mix of families and individuals from many backgrounds. Our egalitarian services and our traditional ritual — spiritual, tuneful and participatory — attract people of all levels of observance.

Join us for festival prayers, joyful and song-filled Hallel. Eat and learn in the Sukkah. Shake the lulav, hold the etrog and hear the once-a-year sacred prayer for rain, “Geshem”. And how can you miss the dancing, merriment and the honor we bestow on the Torah and on our community?!

In the month of Elul, we have 30 days to begin our reflection and realignment on the way to Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. FTJC offers several ways in to this fertile period of time: study, meditation, and singing -- and the power of late-night Selichot prayers.
