In the early 1950s, a group of Holocaust survivors who made it to Phoenix joined together to form a traditional Jewish synagogue. They built a simple but beautiful house of worship a few blocks southeast of Phoenix' 1st successful permanent synagogue. They called their synagogue Beit Evree or Beth Hebrew. Within a few years, though, their traditionalism evolved into a minhag of conservative Judaism.

The 1st successful permanent orthodox synagogue in Phoenix and Scottsdale, Arizona was created a decade and a half later in 1965 by Rabbi David Rebibo when he brought together Beth Joseph Congregation.




Number 1


Beth Joseph Congregation

The largest and earliest successful permanent orthodox shul. Led by a dynamic rabbi and 2 assistant rabbis, this shul has been and is a central address for many Jewish learning experiences and celebrations.


Beth Joseph Congregation, Hebrew Academy, and Vaad HaKashruth
Founded in 1965, this shul is devoted to orthodox Judaism even while welcoming all Jews. Longest serving rabbi: founding Rabbi David Rebibo, 49 years, 1965 - 2014.
Members and/or additional clergy of note: Rabbi Mayer Freedman.




Number 2


Kehillas Shomrei Emunim (and Yeshivas HaTurim)

Rav Shimon Yerucham Green founded Shomrei Emunim with other Phoenicians in the summer of 2012 as a shul and place of learning. Its Yeshivas Haturim offers adult men the opportunity for advanced Torah study.




Number 3

A modern orthodox affiliate of the Young Israel movement. Young Israel of Phoenix. Founded in 1993, YI, is a modern orthodox house of prayer and study, committed to education and community. This YI has many dynamic active Phoenician members including a President of the National Organization of Young Israel. Longest serving rabbi: Rabbi Chaim Silver, 9 years, 1996 -2005.




Number 4


The Phoenix Community Kollel

The Phoenix Community Kollel is a center for advanced Torah studies founded in 2000. It provides opportunities to study in depth our Jewish texts.





Young Israel, The Phoenix Community Kollel, Ohr HaTorah Congregation, and Shaarei Tsion Ohel Bracha share this building in the heart of North Central Phoenix, each with their own aron kodesh.




Number 5
