Welcome to the West Side Sephardic Synagogue website. Our community is a vibrant, diverse, and energetic mix of Jews from all over the world, representing no fewer than 7 languages (Hebrew, English, French, Arabic, Spanish, Italian, & German) and no less than 13 countries of origin (Israel, Tunisia, Morocco, Algeria, France, Spain, Italy, America, Syria, Libya, Canada, Russia, Argentina). All of our services are Orthodox and in the Sepharadic tradition, and our Synagogue is open to Jews of all religious and ethnic backgrounds. All official speeches, sermons, and announcements are made in English, and whatever your own native language, chances are we can find you a translator among our ranks.
Our Synagogue is located on 270 West 84th Street, between Broadway & West End Avenue. Prayers and classes take place on the 3rd floor (Beit Midrash) of Congregation Ohav Shalom.
Please browse the site, leave us your feedback, and feel free to ask our Rabbi any questions that you may have about Sepharadic traditions in particular or Jewish Law in general. We look forward to seeing you soon!
