Congregation Habonim Board of Directors

A Message from the President

Welcome to Congregation Habonim!  We are an egalitarian, Conservative synagogue located at 103 West End Avenue at the corner of 64th Street.  Our members come to us from a wide range of Jewish traditions and our mission is to provide a welcoming, enlightening home to all within our warm and caring community.  Habonim means "the builders."  Our name is especially appropriate at this time, as we are in the process of planning for our beautiful new home on 65th Street near Central Park West, close to the location of the original synagogue built by our founders more than 60 years ago.  But at Habonim, the builders means much more than a physical space.  We build deep connections to Judaism for members of all ages, from our thriving Nursery school, to our comprehensive Religious School, to our exceptional family and adult services and programming.  We build engaged and active members through meaningful volunteer opportunities and pathways to leadership.  And we build strong relationships among our congregants, who regularly learn together, share a simcha, check in on a sick friend, and comfort those facing challenges.  Please spend some time on our website to learn more about us. We also welcome you to come join our services Friday evenings or Saturday mornings for a “test drive” and to stay for our weekly Kiddush lunch.  It’s a perfect opportunity to get know us and experience what makes our community special. If you have any questions, or if there is anything you would like to discuss, please contact me at
