Edmond J. Safra Synagogue, ManhattanJU_admin
Opened in March 2003 on 63rd Street between Madison and Fifth Avenues, the Edmond J. Safra Synagogue of Manhattan is the heart of a thriving Sephardic community on the Upper East Side. Working with the visionary architect Thierry Despont, Mrs. Safra brought to fruition her husband’s wish to create a beautiful, welcoming place of worship and study.
Offering multiple weekday and Shabbat prayer services, as well as a wide variety of learning and engagement opportunities for women, men, young adults, and children, the synagogue hosts hundreds of people every week. Through the energetic and inspiring leadership of Rabbi Shlomo Farhi and his colleagues, communal life is flourishing.
