Welcome to the All Saints’ Episcopal Church web page! It is my hope that this on-line visit will provide you with a glimpse into the life and ministry of All Saints’. Of course, there is no way to fully experience the true richness of any faith community except through Sunday morning worship. Consider this your invitation!
The All Saints’ community especially prides itself in its commitment to worship and preaching, ministry to children, and outreach to the community and the world. We enjoy being with one another in the presence of God. We are also a diverse group. Parishioners come from Briarcliff, Ossining, Tarrytown, Sleepy Hollow, Yorktown, and Irvington, among others. All Saints’ is made up of young families with children, retirees, singles, and teenagers. Some are life-long Episcopalians, others grew up in different faith traditions, and still others grew up without any church background. What we have in common is an understanding that our spiritual lives are never “complete.” We don’t have all the answers but enjoy thinking, praying, and questioning together as we grow in our knowledge and love of God.

Congregation Sons of Israel is an egalitarian Conservative synagogue founded in 1891 by a small dedicated group of families who settled in Ossining, NY.

Under the spiritual leadership of Rabbi Steven Kane and Cantor Jeffrey Shiovitz, and the guidance of our educational director, Roni Shapiro, our congregation offers a unique blend of family and community, providing a learning, social and spiritual environment for all ages.

All are welcome. At the Christ Church Bronxville, all baptized Christians, no matter what age, and no matter of what denomination, are welcome to “receive communion,” that is, eat the bread and drink the wine with the congregation, regardless of which Church they were baptized in. This invitation to other Christians who are not Episcopalians is in sharp contrast to the position of other Churches, such as the Roman Catholic Church, which allows only Roman Catholics to receive. Episcopalians invite all baptized people to receive, not because we take the Eucharist lightly, but because we take our baptism so seriously.
Visitors who are not baptized Christians are still welcome to come forward during the Communion to receive the blessing of the priest. At the end of the Eucharist, the congregation prays once more in thanksgiving, and then is dismissed to continue the life of service to God and to the World.
Everyone is always welcome at a Quaker meeting for worship. Join with us at the Chappaqua Friends Meeting where in worship Friends gather into silent, expectant waiting.

We call this power God, the Light, Christ, the Seed, the Inward Teacher. By whatever name it is known, its nature is love. It draws us toward a life of integrity, simplicity, equality, community, and peace.
Our meetings strive to be loving, nurturing communities. We celebrate diversity and encourage each person to find his or her true voice grounded in experience. We listen deeply to the Spirit and to each other as we seek to discern and embrace God’s will for us individually and as a community. We warmly invite you to join us at the Chappaqua Friends Meeting.

Over the years the vicissitudes of time and demographics have caused the members to grow and change in many ways.

Temple Beth El is a home in which we celebrate our joys and share our sorrows.
Temple Beth El welcomes all who wish to participate in Jewish life: singles, couples and families in all their forms. In the words of our Senior Rabbi, Joshua M. Davidson, “The synagogue is a kehilah kedoshah, a sacred community. Like a sukkah, it is constructed of many different branches woven together: the young, the old, the rich and the poor, the married and the unmarried, single parents, grandparents, gays and heterosexuals, non-Jewish spouses. The broader the Sukkah’s reach, the more tightly its branches are woven, the stronger it stands.”

Holy Name of Mary began as a mission church of St. Augustine's Parish in Sing Sing (now the village of Ossining, NY) in 1868. In 1877 Archbishop McClosky of New York assigned a resident pastor, Fr. Patrick McGovern, and it became a parish in its own right.
The first church that was built named the street which is still called Church Street. Many stone masons and laborers from Italy emigrated to this area during the construction of the Croton Dam (1892-1905), and their descendants are among the active parishioners of the parish to this day. The second church was built on Grand Street in 1898. In 1929, a third church was built adjacent to the second, and the older church was converted into a school. The Chapel of the Good Shepherd was also built in the Harmon section of the village at that time. The second and third churches were built of stone through the generosity of the Coleman family, who were the builders of the Croton Dam.
In 1990 and 1991, both the main church and Good Shepherd Chapel were remodeled and renovated. The school building was converted to be used as a center for religious education, daycare, and as meeting spaces for many parish and extra-parish groups. Because of increased need for meeting space of the ever enlarging religious education program, parish Montessori school, youth ministry, and parish ministry groups another large meeting space was added to the church/school complex in 2000.

We strive to accomplish this task because we are committed to one another in mutual support and presence.
The Sunday Eucharist is the source and summit of our common life together.

The Empty Hand Zen Center is located at 45 Lawton, New Rochelle, NY 10801 in Westchester County. "The Empty Hand Zen Center was originally founded as the Meeting House Zen Group, to offer a place for the practice and study of Zen Buddhism in Westchester County, New York. After over 20 years in rented spaces, we now own this brick industrial building in downtown New Rochelle. Right in the midst of the busyness of multi-cultural urban life, we have carved out an oasis of simplicity within which deep silence and stillness can be experienced.
"We are a non-residential lay practice center, not a monastery. Many monastic forms and customs do, however, help shape the “container” of our strong silent sitting practice. We also regularly explore and are nourished by the study of the Buddha dharma, the teachings within Zen Buddhism, as inspiration and encouragement for the spiritual journey.
"Those who practice here come from a great diversity of backgrounds, religions, professions, life-styles, and ages. It seems that the universality of this meditation does its “work” regardless of outward differences. Being together in silence builds a strong Sangha, or spiritual community, quite naturally. In addition, many find that everyday life is often profoundly touched by the capacity to see more clearly, to be more present, which grows with this practice."

The Union Church of Pocantico Hills features stained glass windows created by two modern masters: Henri Matisse (1869-1954) and Marc Chagall (1887-1985). Commissioned as memorials by members of the Rockefeller family whose estate, Kykuit, is nearby, the windows include the final work of Matisse, completed just two days before his death, and the only cycle of church windows created by Chagall in the United States.
On behalf of his family, Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller commissioned Matisse to create a rose window in memory of his mother Abby Aldrich Rockefeller (1874-1948), a distinguished patron of the arts, a founder of the Museum of Modern Art, and wife of John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Before his death, Matisse had finished the design and had also selected the colors and exact type of glass to be used in the window. His daughter carried out his instructions, and the window was dedicated on Mother's, Day 1956.
David Rockefeller, representing his brothers and sister, commissioned Chagall in 1963 to design a similar memorial to their father, John D. Rockefeller, Jr. who had died in 1960. The large window "The Good Samaritan" was installed and dedicated in 1965. Chagall created eight smaller windows in the sanctuary, seven of which are devoted to Old Testament subjects. The eighth window, established as a memorial to Michael Rockefeller (1938-1961) who was lost in New Guinea, has a New Testament theme.

Begun in 1966, the founders of Woodlands Community Temple sought to create a different kind of congregation. Focusing on the word “community,” they instilled in our members a feeling of belonging and involvement which we often refer to as “the Woodlands Way". Our synagogue is a large, brick mansion on a rural-feeling piece of land in the Town of Greenburgh. Comfortable and homey, our building is made more charming by a simple glass-walled Sanctuary which brings the outdoors in, and no raised bimah or fixed seats.
Our worship experiences are predominantly upbeat and celebratory. We view worship as a microcosm for the outside world and, as such, endeavor to include as much of the full gamut of human experience as we can - from joyous to sad, philosophical to emotional. Additionally, without organ or professional choir, our music is participatory and quite lovely, more often than not accompanied by guitar or some other instrument. Since Woodlands Community Temple members prefer to be part of the service rather than spectators to it, we make every effort - liturgically, musically, and spiritually - to involve us all deeply in it.

The Episcopal Diocese belongs to a confederation of dioceses, which is known as the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America, which was formalized in 1789. The Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States in turn belongs to the Anglican Communion, an association of independent Churches that follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, and as such, uphold and proclaim the Catholic and Apostolic faith, based upon the Scriptures, interpreted in light of tradition, scholarship and reason. The Anglican Communion is historically tied with England. It is unknown when the Christian Church was first established in England, but in 596 Pope Gregory I sent Augustine, with approximately 40 monks, as missionaries. Augustine was later made the first Archbishop of Canterbury. The Church in England separated from Rome, after the Reform movement in 1570 when Pope Pius V excommunicated Elizabeth I. The Churches in the Anglican Communion regard the Archbishop of Canterbury as their spiritual leader, believe that they are a part of God's holy and true Church, and also affirm that God works in other communions and traditions. The Anglican Church strives for unity in fellowship and faith with these traditions.
