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.

Parshat haShavua: Emor             Leviticus 21:1-24:23


Parshat Emor deals primarily with two topics: the holiness of a caste of human beings and the holiness of time.  



Aaron, Moses' brother and Aaron's descendants were designated to be the Jewish society's priests. Their responsibilities included overseeing the offering of sacrifices on behalf o the community and on behalf of individuals. They were not given an inheritance of land as the other tribes. They and the rest of the tribe of Levi were paid through tithing and eating the sacrifices that were offered. Thus they were the charge of the rest of the people.
