Harold and Elaine Shames Jewish Community Center on the Hudson
371 South Broadway, Tarrytown, 10591
The Shames JCC is a 75,000 square foot state of the art facility at the epicenter of Jewish life in Westchester’s Rivertowns and beyond. Its 6,000 members of all faiths, backgrounds and ability enjoy programs ranging from early childhood to adult learning, from sports, swimming and fitness to Jewish culture, workshops and social action. Its Early Childhood Program and Day Camp are top rated and currently expanding. It has a fitness center with over 70 pieces of equipment, a full court gymnasium and a two pool aquatics center offering over 100 classes and personal training. In a warm and friendly atmosphere, the Shames creates an environment where members and non-members can connect with one another for lasting relationships to enhance their lives and benefit the community.
Temple Beth Abraham is fully egalitarian and functions under the philosophy that Jews have too much in common to allow a desire to pray in a certain way from preventing the creation of one synagogue community. Families of every configuration and singles are welcome. Although affiliated with the Reform movement, Temple Beth Abraham holds Shabbat and Holiday services in both Reform and Conservative modes in separate sacred spaces. The energy that results permeates all activities, from an innovative Religious School to a communal commitment to social justice.
Temple Beth Abraham was the first Temple in Westchester County to replace the traditional dues model with a voluntary contribution system. Each family decides the level at which they support TBA rather than paying according to a fixed scale of costs for membership.
A mixed multitude of early childhood, seniors, families, couples and individuals all reading, singing, studying and celebrating the life cycle together. Some who believe, some who doubt, all who question — building a sense of community and hope. Affiliated with the Union for Reform Judaism, we are a welcoming, trans-denominational, progressive congregation of over 400 families serving the Rivertowns and beyond. Known for our Nursery School programs for toddlers, 2, 3 and 4/5- year-olds, Religious School for kindergarten through high school, and an extensive selection of adult education programs. Weekly Shabbat service on Friday evenings; Holiday services; events including films, choir and music; social action and tzedakah are central to our community.

Woodlands Community Temple is a Reform Jewish congregation nestled in the woods of Greenburgh, New York (near White Plains, Ardsley, Dobbs Ferry, Edgemont, Hastings, Irvington, and Tarrytown). We are a vibrant, warm, welcoming, diverse and egalitarian community committed to creating a dynamic, innovative environment for all who wish to participate in Jewish life and ritual. We believe that an understanding of and an appreciation for differences – age, color, disability, sex, race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression – lead to healthy and inclusive communities. We believe that by respecting all people and hearing all voices – by celebrating our shared humanity – we make better decisions for ourselves and for the communities we serve. We take a progressive approach to Jewish life, integrating a deep respect for traditional Judaism with the insights of contemporary living.
