From the rabbi

Jews set up three things when they establish a community: a cemetery, a school, and a synagogue. One is to handle the inevitable, one is to provide for the future and one is to gather. And gather is what we do. For all of the cycles of life and the holy days and moments of our communal life.

We are very proud of our Jewish history and community here in Winston-Salem. We welcome you to our website and would love to welcome you to our physical site as well if you are in search of exploring Jewish life here in the Twin City.

–Rabbi Mark Cohn
