       The Persian Hebrew Congregation

A Synagogue that feels like home

Jews from numerous countries and various origins pray together in our beautiful sanctuary, celebrate chagim together, study together, enjoy kiddushim together and are always excited to welcome newcomers to our congregation.

Three Tenets of Judaism

At the Persian Hebrew Congregation, our home away from home, the three tenets of Judaism, Torah, Avodah and Ge'Meelut Chasidim (Study, Worship and Acts of Kindness) are the values that we hope to live by.

                     Upcoming Events
