Shaaray Tefila, The Center for Jewish Life is a multi-
generational community that creates an atmosphere for the enjoyment of Jewish life & opportunities for spiritual growth.

Welcome to Congregation Shaaray Tefila

At Shaaray Tefila we will welcome you with open minds and open hearts. We appreciate that people experience Jewish life in different ways.  We strive to be inclusive and to help every individual and family find a Judaism that is personally meaningful, whether through prayer, study, music, art, literature, philosophy, food, Hebrew language, film, fellowship, or love of Israel. 

If you are exploring Jewish opportunities in the North Country, call or e-mail our office and a member will be happy to contact you and help introduce you to our community.

Follow our Facebook page or sign up for our weekly e-mail and monthly newsletter to stay up to date on our activities.
