About this Synagogue:
Congregation Agudath Israel is a flagship Conservative synagogue that offers meaningful Jewish experiences in a warm, welcoming environment. With 900 member households, we offer an impressive portfolio of religious, cultural, academic, musical, and social experiences.

Led by Senior Rabbi Alan Silverstein, Associate Rabbi Ari Lucas, Cantor Joel Caplan, and Education Director Susan Werk, CAI is firmly committed to serving members at all stages of life. Each year, over 100 children begin their relationship with the synagogue in our nationally recognized Early Childhood Center and 250 students pursue education in our Religious School. Young parents, empty-nesters, and seniors return to the classroom in our Adult and Scholarly Education programs that engage more than 200 learners each week. As a leading regional event venue, CAI annually offers programming for enrichment and entertainment. Film screenings, Israel programs, book signings, musical performances, comedy shows, and academic presentations are offered regularly, contributing to the congregation’s active culture.

Weekly Shabbat morning services are regularly attended by more than 250 people. After Shabbat services, a Kiddush luncheon brings together our entire community—consisting of singles, couples, families, empty-nesters, and seniors—all of whom have found a second home at CAI!

To experience all this and more, schedule a private tour and meeting with Membership and Community Relations Coordinator Debbie Lurie by calling (973) 226-3600 or by emailing
