Synod of the Northeast is an upper judicatory of the Presbyterian Church (USA) based in Stony Point, New York. The synod oversees twenty-two presbyteries in six New England states (Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut), two of the three Mid-Atlantic States (New Jersey and New York), plus an overseas presbytery in the Republic of Korea.
