Welcome to Temple Shaaray Tefila of Westchester

Temple Shaaray Tefila is a Reform Jewish congregation with a traditional spirit. We celebrate, teach, and observe the most worthy values and ideals of our Jewish tradition: Torah, mitzvah, and tzedakah. In doing so, we connect our members and their families to each other, to the greater Jewish community, and to Israel. Anyone who seeks a warm and vibrant Jewish community will feel comfortable in our congregation.


Temple Shaaray Tefila is a Reform congregation with a traditional spirit. Our worship services encompass a wide range of spiritual experiences, with an emphasis on engaging music, inspiring speakers, and community prayer.


One of the most important aspects of our Temple life is the opportunity for congregants to create connections – to each other, to families and organizations in Westchester, to the greater Jewish community, to Israel, and to those in need around the world.


Jewish education is a lifelong journey that should be meaningful, dynamic, challenging, and inspiring. Through our formal and informal educational programs, we hope to inspire a love of Jewish learning, a commitment to tikkun olam, and a deep connection to Israel.


Our clergy, staff, and buildings and grounds are always available to help you mark all of your Jewish life cycle events. From our magnificent sanctuary to our elegant social hall, Temple Shaaray Tefila provides a unique spiritual setting for any milestone.

Every contribution supports our vibrant Shaaray Tefila community.
