Temple of Universal Judaism members includes multi-generational families, same-sex couples and individuals, interfaith families and couples, those descended from matrilineal or patrilineal Jewish parents, Jews-by-choice, and people of all ages.  Though we are a mainstream Reform congregation with strong, traditional Jewish values and practices, we feel privileged to welcome both Jews and non-Jews.

TUJ is far more than a synagogue or simply a "religious" group: we are a true “community” – a warm, devoted congregation of caring and supportive individuals and families who share a culture of Jewish living.

As we continue to grow, our members come from all the great population centers of world Jewry: North America, South America, France, Israel, and many more.  And with our very low cost Membership, TUJ is the most financially egalitarian Reform congregation in New York!  Regardless of one's footing, we make it possible for all to join us.

about us

At TUJ, The Temple of Universal Judaism we take pride in being a “house for all people” (Isaiah 56).  For nearly fifty years we’ve been a Reform congregation where both Jews and non-Jews can find a welcoming Jewish home.

As a URJ: Union for Reform Judaism congregation, we embrace the two-millennia old premise of Rabbinic Judaism which saw the unfolding Jewish future as a shifting mirror of Judaism’s ancient past.   At TUJ you will find a combination of beautiful Jewish traditions and modern creative adaptations.

Throughout history, Jews have been a people of diverse origins united by the Torah’s message of compassion and justice for all.  We honor that tradition as we embrace individuals of all races, backgrounds and orientations and strive to bestow dignity on every human soul.

TUJ is historically blessed to have great longevity with clergy.  Our founding rabbi, Roy Rosenberg, was with the congregation for over twenty years.

Rabbi Ari Fridkis, one of the most ideologically progressive ordained Reform rabbis in North America came to us back in 2012 and has no plans of tiring out.

Cantor, Dana Anesi, an HUC-JIR ordained Reform cantor joined us in 2014.  She too is here to stay.

Both Rabbi Fridkis and Cantor Anesi are supportive and open to both intrafaith and interfaith couples and families and both officiate at interfaith weddings.


If you haven't visited us - or haven't recently - we hope you will soon: all are always welcome.  Consider joining us for the Holy Days, for any 1st, 2nd or 3rd Shabbat evening, or a holiday service and celebration.  We promise you will receive a very warm and personal welcome.


Whether you are a member, visitor or guest, we need and welcome your financial support.

We are New York City's - and North America's! - most theologically progressive, mainstream URJ: Union for Reform Judaism congregation.  TUJ's open-door and open-minded presence is an example to Jews all around the world: that every Jewish community can maintain and build a full Jewish life,  inclusive of every human being, each with his or her differing spiritual needs.
