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.
Our size affords us the opportunity to offer individuals and families of all ages educational offerings ranging from Foundation School (ages 2-5) to ALIYAH (K-12 Jewish learning program), to our USY teen-based programs. And, because learning does not stop once adolescence ends, we offer many adult programs, too. We have a variety of social and cultural programming for young adults, young families, empty nesters, East Siders and adults in addition to daily minyan, innovative Shabbat services and traditional Shabbat and holiday services. There is something for everyone-wherever you are in your Jewish journey.
CNS community members build and deepen relationships with one another, staff and clergy, with God because we are committed to building connections one person to another and each person to the Jewish community and their spiritual intention. We would love for you to visit CNS. Please stop by, call or send an Email to our staff to schedule a time to come by for a conversation on how you can join us in impassioned Jewish living.
