Mount Sinai in the Spring

The Mount Sinai Jewish Center is an Orthodox Jewish Ashkenazi congregation in the Washington Heights / Hudson Heights neighborhood, in the New York City borough of Manhattan.

It is located at 135 Bennett Ave (at the corner of 187th street and Broadway).

History[edit]

It is a conglomeration of many shuls that have merged over the past 102 years. Its official title is Mount Sinai Anshe Emeth, Emez Wozedek Jewish Center of Washington Heights & Beth Hillel & Beth Israel.[1]

Since 2000, Mount Sinai has seen a massive resurgence due to the influx of many young, religious Jews moving to the neighborhood.

Currently Rabbi Ezra Schwartz serves as the rabbi.
