Now in its 10th year, The Community Free Synagogue is a new and exciting model for the 21st century American synagogue: a thriving spiritual village! 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 and most active 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, and we do not solicit funds. At C.F.S. you will never "pay to pray."

The Community Free Synagogue's next "Brown Bag Movie Night" is on Thursday February 25, featuring "The Outrageous Sophie Tucker".
This documentary focuses on America's first 20th century "diva" whose 60 year career started in the Flapper Era.. Unlike anyone performer before her, Sophie Tucker set the mold for Mae West, Bette Midler, Madonna, and Lady Gaga. Using rare footage and candid interviews, this movie offers us some rare insights into the roots of America's entertainment industry.
The showing begins at 6:30 PM in the synagogue's Community Hall, 10868 Metro Parkway. Pack your dinner, the soft drinks and snacks are complimentary. Admission is free and open to the public.
