The Music and Culture Shul

Join us at Metropolitan Synagogue for a unique monthly Friday night Shabbat concert of Jewish music and services with Sephardi singer and virtuoso Avram Pengas, from 6-7 pm. See below schedule.

Here at the METROPOLITAN SYNAGOGUE, we bring together the warmth and spirituality of Judaism in our services as an extended family of all ages. For over fifty years, we have believed that music is a powerful vessel through which one can pray and one can also bring together a community with a common goal; a goal to keep the richness of our culture and religion alive.

We celebrate our cultural diversity and heritage as expressed through performance, the written word, and inspirational educational programming. As we go through our day to day struggles of finding the balance between traditions and modernity we invite you to join us in prayer and in song and come together to create one community.

We are the METROPOLITAN SYNAGOGUE and we welcome you!
