Welcome to Congregation Agudath Israel of West Essex

Shalom! Welcome to Congregation Agudath Israel. We are a vibrant, multigenerational synagogue that offers access to Jewish life and community for people of all backgrounds. For over 100 years, our community has been a thriving center for Jewish life in the Caldwells. The greatest strength of our synagogue is the people who care about each other and take pride in their Jewish life. There’s not one way to be Jewish, so there are a variety of different ways to learn, pray, connect, volunteer, and get involved.

Deeply rooted in Torah and Jewish tradition, mindful of our past, and hopeful for our future, our community is open to all those who seek meaning and connection. We celebrate and support each other through significant moments in our lives and the life of our community.

CAI is a place where everyone is welcome, where Jewish life is accessible and joyful, where people make lifelong friends and share community. I look forward to seeing you here.
