Now in its 17th year, The Community Free Synagogue is a progressive model for the 21st century American synagogue guided by Rabbi Bruce Diamond, who is starting his 25th year in Fort Myers. The synagogue belongs to the community; its mission is prayer, study and benevolent acts. It 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 are open to all without sale of memberships, fees or solicitations.

The "Free" in Community Free Synagogue means many things, not merely monetary. We encourage and empower our participants to freely share their talents and enthusiasm. The same is true for our Rabbi. We move forward through open and continued communication with our people and by building consensus. We are guided by our Rabbi's wisdom and learning, with service to God and shalom bayit (peace of the home) always at the forefront.

Our moral and religious commitments enable us to trust each other as adults. Our greatest pleasure is offering a deeply-textured authentic Jewish congregation with doors and arms open wide to all those who enter them! We exist to create "Jewish opportunities" and ask nothing in return but civility, mutual respect and musar, the highest Jewish ethical standards.

We are the village well. If you are thirsty come and drink, Residents, visitors, no matter who you are- the water is yours. And keep it that way for others too!
