The Conservative Synagogue of Fifth Avenue has been serving Greenwich Village and the surrounding neighborhoods for nearly sixty years.
Housed in a small former private residence tucked behind a lovely garden, CSFA is inviting, warm and heimisch. Our traditional services, both lay- and clergy-led, are songful and spirited, and our members care deeply about their extended CSFA family, and always warmly welcome everyone who walks through our doors. After shabbat morning services, we all enjoy a substantial kiddush meal, lehayyims, and rounding out our shabbat with the joy of companionship.
Our membership reflects the diversity of the communities we serve: We come from all walks of life and span all levels of religious observance. We are young and old, single and married, gay and straight, liberal and conservative. What unites us is our love for one another, and our commitment to this unique community.
Our dynamic rabbi, Joe Schwartz — a native New Yorker — joined us 2015. He will be sure to greet you as soon as you come in and get to know you over kiddush. Rabbi Schwartz's divrei torah and teaching are always impassioned and thoughtful, and his davening rousing and soulful.
Feel free to join us at any time. Please see our calendar for upcoming events.
