Old Plus

May be the oldest Synagogue in the area. It was old in the 50's when I worked in Flushing. It's now 2019. Do the math. I have to look on the building to see if there's date and will update.

Beautiful Synagogue
May 2017 • Family
This was the temple I went to as a child, way back when - 1980s. The sanctuary is beautiful. I remember the Torah was kept in a separate room. This temple makes anyone who walks in feel welcome no matter your religion. I will never forget all of the stairs to the front doors. In 1989, we moved to Long Island and the temple was not as good as this one.

Plan ahead to tour Free Synagogue
May 2017 • Couples
The central place of worship isn't open to the public so plan ahead by emailing or calling the main office phone number. I toured this as part an annual tour organized by the New York Landmarks Conservancy called "Sacred Sites NY." The Free Synagogue of Flushing is a landmarked building. The ornamental elements inside the synagogue are classically ornate, very European-feeling in the materials and grandeur. The pews are modern wood. There's a beautiful stained glass window at the peak of the ceiling dome. The tour guide explained they don't know if it's Tiffany glass though it looks like it might be. It's unlikely for a synagogue to have stained glass, he explained, which is a feature that makes the architecture unique.

A Reform Sephardic Temple in Asia Town
Jul 2016 • Family
Flushing, one of the oldest villages in NYC, was a Jewish neighborhood 100 years ago when this huge Shul was built in the Sephardic Style. Now Flushing is Chinese & Korean - there are less than a Minyan of Jews left - but Jews love Chinese food so commute in for services. The building is beautiful and worth a visit, but take public transportation as parking is impossible.

Beautiful place in the middle of Flushing!
Sep 2015 • Friends
I really appreciate a contribution to local community. I'm not sure it's local actually as I come here from another city. Just to be here and listen to people talks and look at the beauty of this place.

A refuge of tolerance and spirituality
Dec 2015
Six or seven years ago our son discovered this synagogue while driving by on the bus. He visited and was immediately impressed with the thoughtfulness and eloquence of Rabbi Michael Weisser. He joined and we soon followed. At the time, the synagogue was coming off of a low ebb, but as of 2015, they are resurgent with a room full of young scholars coming in every weekend and an ambitious slate of programs.

A service

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.
