Welcome to Midtown New York's Historic Synagogue serving Manhattan's Orthodox Community since 1857.
Congregation Talmud Torah Adereth El was established in 1857. It has the distinction
of being New York's oldest synagogue in its original location with continuous services.
Founded four years before the Civil War, the history of Adereth El is intertwined with that
of New York City. Rabbi Emeritus Sidney Klieman served as Adereth El's spiritual leader
from 1939-1999 and still attends services every day. For more than a decade, Rabbi
Gideon Shloush has infused the shul with his energy and creativity, and Adereth El
is experiencing a wonderful renaissance. The Synagogue plays a vital role in New
York's Jewish community. Adereth El serves the neighborhood through daily prayer
services, weekly learning and outreach programs, an array of Shabbat activities,
welcoming guests from around the world, providing assistance to those with loved
ones in area hospitals.
