A Reformed Jewish house of worship for nearly a century, the free Synagogue of Flushing is the oldest liberal Reform synagogue in Queens. Services are open to all who wish to attend, and take place on Friday evenings at 7:30. We are located one block from the Flushing branch of the Queens Public Library. We have a beautiful garden right in the heart of Flushing, and our stained glass windows attract many visitors every year. If you would like to tour this historic landmark, please call to make a reservation.

It amazed me. The sanctuary was magnificent! The actual speaking, singing, and piano playing were so sweet that it actually brought tears to my eyes at some points. It was a wonderful experience.

It looks like it needs help, IT DOES. But has been in place for decades, and the actual sanctuary is quite beautiful. If in the area, stop in & see.
