We are a welcoming synagogue that values tradition while adapting to the needs of today’s Jews. Celebrating over 100 years in Greater Glens Falls, our goal has always been to create a friendly environment that enables our members and guests to do Jewish things together.


Congregation Shaaray Tefila is a Conservative Congregation. Conservative Judaism believes that the laws of the Torah and Jewish Custom are sacred, that they are transmitted from generation to generation and may not be discarded; but may be adapted to the modern conditions of Jewish life. It is our aspirations to protect and conserve Jewish faith in the belief that Jews are bound together, not only by our religion, but also by our language, our culture and our ties to Israel.


The Synagogue is central to the entire Jewish Community because it is the focal point of the public worship which unites the individual to his Jewish commitment. Meaningful services provide the incentive to extend Sabbath and Festival Celebrations to the home.


The members of Congregation Shaaray Tefila are proud to be part of a tradition that began 4000 years ago.  Our synagogue’s program of worship, study, holiday observances, and fellowship activities links us to past and future generations of our eternal heritage.  We are glad that we can practice our faith freely and openly, and we invite all persons of good will and upright intent to join with us in the service of God.
