    Now in its 12th year, The Community Free Synagogue is a progressive model for the 21st century American synagogue guided by Rabbi Bruce Diamond, D.D., a long-time community leader, scholar and master teacher. C.F.S. does not sell memberships, tickets or set fees for any of its many programs and events.  The synagogue is an open community resource whose mission is prayer, study and benevolent acts. The synagogue is comfortably supported through a spirit of volunteerism and by the generosity of the hundreds of households that make C.F.S. their congregational home. All of its programs and events, including youth Hebrew and Jewish education, are open to all without fees or solicitations. You don't "belong" to our synagogue- our synagogue belongs to you!
