Former Synagogues of NYC

The boroughs of New York City, including Manhattan, were once home to a lot of synagogues (and mutual aid societies).


This webpage lists the names, addresses and when available, the names of the rabbi and other personnel for those synagogues that once stood in Manhattan. Additionally, if the synagogue (or society) was associated with a particular town or country, that is noted. Most of these synagogues are no longer active.

If you believe the list is missing a synagogue or you know which town and country it was associated with, please do contact the museum.

Also check out the following related webpages:

  1. Former Synagogue List -- Brooklyn
  2. Former Synagogue List -- Bronx
  3. Former Synagogue List – Queens and Richmond (Staten Island) Counties
The gateway page to all of these lists can be found here.


Editor’s Note: This is just one helpful resource found on the Museum of Family History website.  Do check out the resources listed for the “Education and Research Center” which include “The Schools of New York City,” “Genealogy and Family History,” etc.
