Historically, the Synagogue has been the single most important force in the continuation of our people and in the preservation of a glorious year old spiritual heritage from the time of Abraham and Sarah.

The Rego Park Jewish Center is proud to be part of this great legacy since it's founding in 1939. A traditional Conservative Synagogue , and a member of the United Synagogues, the Center understands as its primary purpose, the preservation and fostering of the time-honored traditions and ceremonies of our people in a spirit of authenticity, intelligence and warmth.

The religious leadership of the Center have an unusual blend of the old and the new commitment to Halakhic Judaism and concern for issues of the modern world,as well as warmth, sensitivity, and compassion. Jews of every persuasion,regardless of their level of observance or religious background, are encouraged to be part of this great legacy and to affiliate with us and will be made to feel welcomed and part of our family.
