SHALOM! Congregation Sons of Israel Welcomes You

First Congregation Sons of Israel is located in the beautiful historic district of "The Nation's Oldest City" St. Augustine, Florida. We are a congregation of about 140 members with a seating capacity of 225. Our Orthodox Rabbi Samuel Cywiak conducts Sabbath services each Friday evening and Saturday morning as well as all Holiday services. Sons of Israel provides a warm and caring Jewish atmosphere in which we recognize the need for a friendly and comforting house of worship. Our membership is considered our most important asset and we strive to provide opportunities to participate in a Jewish experience that will enhance the family spirit of our Congregation.

Whether you are a single parent, single adult, senior citizen or a conventional family, Sons of Israel has something for you. We have an active Hebrew School that is free to new members for the first year. Our Rabbi and teachers prepare our children for Bar and Bat Mitzvahs at a nominal cost. We have an active social agenda and we actively participate in Civic affairs.

Congregation Sons of Israel is growing and we would like to include you as members. Although our annual dues are moderate, on a need basis our membership requirements can be structured to accommodate unusual financial circumstances in a confidential manner to assist those who wish to join. After five years, Congregation membership includes rights to free internment at our Jewish Cemetery.
