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.
