About Fuchsberg

Our Mission

In 1972 leaders of the United Synagogue of America decided to establish a Conservative Jewish home in the heart of the Jewish State. Imbued with that vision, they founded The Center for Conservative Judaism in Jerusalem.

Today, Conservative Jews from all over the world visit the Center for study, guidance, fellowship and hospitality, and above all, to be exposed to the Jerusalem/Israel Experience.

Our Guest House & Seminar Center — Home to our various programs, includes housing for over 200 people, classrooms, Kreutzer auditorium & Kingsley dining room. For guest house reservations in the Alan J. Tichnor Residence Hall & Learning Center: agron-rsv@iyha.org.il 02-594–5581

Conservative Yeshiva in Jerusalem — Our Co-educational full time Yeshiva begins its 19th year with over 90 full and part time year students. 150 students studying this summer. Sessions are held in the Epstein, Geller, David Beit Midrash.

Congregation Moreshet Yisrael serves both Israelis and visitors from abroad with a daily morning Minyan as well as services for Shabbat and Holidays.

Continuing Education

Jack and Sue Becker Project Oded Jewish Studies Enrichment Program — We offer 11 weekly classes that bring around 300 participants each week to the Center.

Youth Department

For over 60 years USY has brought thousands of teenagers to Israel, connecting them with the Jewish homeland by experiencing Israel’s beauty and accomplishments alongside their peers. Taking part in a variety of adventurous outdoor activities and engaging in life affirming dialogs, while gaining a new appreciation, understanding, and love for Israel and the Jewish people.

As the home for Conservative Judaism in Israel, the Fuchsberg Jerusalem Center offers varying programs including authentic Israeli experiences and social-action focused trips, on which teens can meet and personally touch the lives of Israeli citizens, experiencing the country in a very unique and meaningful way.

Here are some examples of what we do:
