We meet in the Southwest Florida Masonic Center, 10868 Metro Pkwy, in South Fort Myers  (MAP)

Now in its 10th year, The Community Free Synagogue is a new and exciting model for the 21st century American synagogue: more a spiritual village than an organization! You don't "belong" to the synagogue- the synagogue belongs to you through your participation in the life of our congregation, whose mission is prayer, study and benevolent acts. We comfortably support ourselves through a spirit of volunteerism and by the generosity of the hundreds of households that make C.F.S. their congregational home and our area's largest Jewish congregation. Our music is vibrant, worship uplifting and highly participatory, and our setting relaxed and informal. There are no fees or charges for any of our programs or classes, nor will you ever "pay to pray."

Traditional Sabbath Eve dinner every Friday evening at 6:30. It's free, casual and reservations are not needed. (Bring some cookies or a bottle of wine if you'd like!)

  Worship begins at 7:30 PM each Friday evening.

 Torah Study with the rabbi is preceded by a light breakfast each Saturday from 9:30-11:30AM

C.F.S. recipient of prestigious Chai Minded Grant!

Hanukah Events:

The Community Free Synagogue welcomed Hanukah by dedicating its new outdoor menorah in front of its home at the Southwest Florida Masonic Center on Metro Parkway in south Fort Myers. There will be a gathering at 5:30 each evening of Hanukah to light a new lamp throughout the 8 days of the festival. (More photos)


Be sure to enjoy our 10th Annual Latke Dinner and Hanukah Sing-Along on Friday, December 19 starting at 6:30 PM. Please do not bring any main courses, especially meat dishes!
