Synagogues: There are over ten Masorti congregations in Jerusalem who are delighted to invite overseas students to join them for the High Holidays as well as throughout the year. I would like to call to your attention two synagogues in particular.

Congregation Moreshet Yisrael Yerushalayim next door to the Fuchsberg Center For Conservative Judaism is ideal for students who will be in the area of the center of the city. The congregation is pleased to invite you to be their guests. For a reserved seat (for free), please call Arlene at 02- 625-3539. 

Congregation Ramot Zion, Rehov Bar Kochba, 68, French Hill (behind the supermarket) is a perfect fit for those living in Kfar Hastudentim.
Overseas students are invited to join the congregation for the High Holidays as well as throughout the year. Members have assigned seats. Some seats for students will be set aside, first come, first served! No one is turned away.
