A special thank you to TUJ’s telephone “Operator”: TUJ’s own Nick Abrams.

At Da’at Elohim: The Temple of Universal Judaism (TUJ), we take pride in being a “house for all people” (Isaiah 56). For forty years we’ve been a Reform congregation where both Jews and non-Jews can find a welcoming Jewish home. As a Union for Reform Judaism congregation, we embrace the two-millennia old premise of Rabbinic Judaism which saw the unfolding Jewish future as a shifting mirror of Judaism’s ancient past.

What makes TUJ unique among mainstream Reform congregations is respect for each individual’s and family’s choices. We embrace interfaith couples, dual religion families, agnostics and humanists, gays and lesbians, singles and people of color, the young and old. Anyone – Jew or Gentile – can join our Jewish congregation.

As we continue to grow, our members come from all the great population centers of world Jewry: North America, South America, France, Israel, and many more. At TUJ you will find a combination of beautiful and ancient Jewish traditions and modern creative adaptations.

With affordable dues, an open door policy with no one turned away, an individualized Bar/Bat Mitzvah program for children – and adults – without high fees, “x” years of Hebrew school or the number of prayers recited, we are NYC’s best-kept Jewish secret.

Mostly, we are a warm and friendly congregation where you will be embraced and find a warm welcome. Visit us for the Holy Days, Sukkot, Hanukah, Passover Seder, a Family Shabbat or any 1st & 3rd Shabbat eve @730pm.
