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

(Please note: On Sabbath mornings October 25 and November 1 Torah Study is in the clubhouse of the Forest Country Club, about 2 miles south of Gladiolus on 41.)

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