What is
your story?

Central Synagogue is a single community, made up of thousands of individuals. Each one of us has a story to tell, and everyone’s voice matters.

Like the havdalah candle, which burns brighter with its interwoven wicks, as a community we are stronger than the sum of our parts. Join us as we share our individual stories and weave them together into the single story of Central Synagogue.

By telling our stories, and actively listening to the stories of others, we discover what connects us. Stories in isolation keep us separate; by listening to each other we come together. We find common ground.
