Hebrew Congregation of Somers and Nothern Westchester Temple


We welcome all to HCS where we keep Jewish traditions, but debate the ideas.

We are a Reconstructionist temple.Our services led by Rabbi Halina Rubinstein and Cantor Ruth Ossher are informal with a mixture of English and Hebrew with lots of music, discussion and food.


We are so sure you will want
to stay that we offer  dues-free first year membership with  FREE high-holiday seats.


We welcome all -- regardless of marital status, age, race, family composition, sexual orientation, and/or disabilities.  No experience is required to join. We keep our dues as low as possible.

Children of interfaith couples are considered Jews by Reconstructionists if they have either a Jewish mother or father, as long as they are being raised as Jews. Non-Jewish partners of members are always welcome and are included in all activities of the synagogue.

Children, teens and adults learn in small groups with individually paced learning.
