  • We were walking down Lexington when we meet with the synagogue... was one of the places I wanted to know so that I close to a lady who was at the entrance to ask if we could pass. Told us that we could miss as had a service at that moment... until very understandable there. Would what not me is clear to the day of today is that when you ask them schedules for to visit the synagogue I said that had that remove ones tickets (habre understood well?) or, there are that pay to enter in a temple?

  • The beautiful building is central synagogue in Midtown Manhattan, in Midtown Manhattan. Made in Oriental style, the synagogue stands out against the background of concrete skyscrapers. It is difficult to find Sinagonu the same beauty, is well worth a visit!

  • It's very different from what we used in the french consistoriaux rites syna... For the office of Shabbat, Madam the Rabbi takes his guitar, accompanied by a flutist and pianist and began a great office reduced compared to what one is accustomed... Man and woman are side by side and cat in heart... But in the end, it works. It emanates from this real emotion... To do for those who are concerned

  • The Central Synagogue (Congregation Ahavath Chesed) is located at 652 Lexington Avenue on the corner of E 55th Street, Manhattan, New York City, New York. It was built in 1872 in the Moorish Revival style as a copy of Budapest's Dohány Street Synagogue.[5] It has been in continuous use by a congregation longer than any other in the city.[6][7] The building was designed by Henry Fernbach. The dramatic style of the building was the subject of much debate during the construction. Some felt its excess would inspire envy and stand in the way of assimilation.[8] It is among the oldest synagogue buildings still standing in the United States.[9] It was designated a National Historic Landmark on May 15, 1975.[3][6] On Wednesdays at 12:45 p.m. a docent conducts a free tour, which begins at the front entrance. The building was restored by 2001 in the original style after an accidental fire in August 1998.[10] The roof and its supports were destroyed as a result of the fire. During this fire, the firefighters' sensitivity for the building saved all but the central pane in the rose window that dominates the eastern (Lexington Avenue) wall. The marble plaques on the north wall of the foyer honor the firefighters of the 8th Battalion of the New York City Fire Department.
  • A magnificent Temple and a terrific Rabinical staff . The Friday night service is a joy to attend and if you love music do not miss it. Uplifting. Howie S.
  • Historic Shul Designed by Henry Fernbach - Excellent Jewish Education, Music & Community Programs - Special guest lecturers over the years included Dr. Henry Kissinger, Tony Blair & Former President Bill Clinton
