Our Community


  Shalom and welcome to CNS! We are a congregation that believes in the vitality of the Jewish people. Our community is filled with individuals and families who enjoy living a Jewish life that is dynamic, challenging, creative and inspirational. We welcome those new to Judaism, interfaith couples and families, and those who have a long affiliation with the rich traditions of Conservative Judaism. We truly are egalitarian and welcoming to all! CNS is the oldest and largest Conservative synagogue in Portland.


We are located in the heart of Southwest Portland, easily accessible from all points in the metropolitan area in a beautiful facility that was totally modernized and updated in 2008 featuring the largest Jewish library in the Northwest, three chapels, a boutique-style gift shop, and plenty of parking.
