Congregation Habonim is a vibrant neighborhood synagogue on the Upper West Side, just a block from Lincoln Center, that offers a haven of warmth and spiritual growth in a large and often anonymous city. Founded by German refugees who sought the solace of religious community in a new country, Habonim continues to be a synagogue that values its unique history. This is embodied through the emphasis on hachnasat orchim (the welcoming of guests) and the possibility for our members to develop strong relationships with the clergy and professional staff, as well as deep bonds of friendship with each other. The desire for a heimish, unpretentious environment of Talmud Torah (learning), Tefillah (prayer), and Kehillah Kedosha (sacred community) for all ages is a core value of our congregation.

Our congregants value our multi-generational kehillah, and seek to act on the value of L’dor va’dor, establishing connections within people of varied ages in the synagogue. The Habonim Sisterhood and the Rosh Chodesh Group serve important roles in this ongoing work. Community members value the warmth and closeness of relationships forged here, and cite the quality of the friendships forged at Habonim as a unique and special quality of this congregation.
