We are delighted that you are interested in Westchester Reform Temple (WRT). Experiences with WRT span every life cycle event for you and/or your family, and we encourage each Member to play an active part in the growth of this dynamic, caring, and spiritual congregation.
The information contained within this website will provide you with a sample of life at WRT, and we look forward to speaking with you personally, to answer questions you may have about any and every aspect of our special community.
Among the 1,100 member households of WRT, you will find the embodiment of Reform Jewish diversity in America today – for adults, children and entire families. Within our ever-evolving Reform tradition that seeks to find in ancient traditions meaningful expressions of prayer, song, ritual, study and community involvement, we try to satisfy all appetites for Jewish soul-food, spiritual and physical.
We strive to realize this through our five pillars of:
Talmud Torah (Learning),
Tikkun Olam (Repairing the World), and
Clal Yisrael (The Jewish People).
The congregation was founded in 1953, and in 1954 world famous architect Marcel Breuer designed the original building with the sanctuary in the shape of a Star of David. In 2008, continuing in the tradition of creating meaningful spaces of worship and learning, WRT completed a new “green” sanctuary and transformed the original spaces into new classrooms for our Religious School and a Beit Midrash – place of study.
We are an active congregation that always seeks to honor the past with an eye to the future of our community and the world beyond our walls. We welcome anyone seeking a caring Jewish community committed to learning, celebrating and serving.
