  • The Rabbi is very personable and the congregation very welcoming. The Seder was well run and explained very well. The building is well kept and the Synagogue has a long and rich history in the Philadelphia area going back to 1740. I felt very comfortable here.
  • Beautiful Spanish-Portuguese Sephardic Tisha B'Av service.
