About

4996077345_3a42753577_bBeth Hakneses Hachodosh is the oldest Orthodox synagogue in Rochester, New York. During the last century and a quarter, we have served as a cornerstone of the Rochester Jewish community.

Our mission is to improve Jewish life in Rochester. Our synagogue provides a warm and friendly place to daven as well as many Torah classes. We host the community Mivka on our property and have helped establish all the local Jewish schools. We offer the only Daf Yomi shiur in Rochester, a father-son learning program, a weekly woman’s class that has continued for over forty years as well as many other innovative programs to address the spiritual needs of the community. We continue to find new ways to improve the spiritual and community life in Rochester and hope to continue to do so until the coming of Mashiach..
