Our Community


  Shalom and welcome to CNS! We are a congregation that believes in the vitality of the Jewish people. Our community is filled with individuals and families who enjoy living a Jewish life that is dynamic, challenging, creative and inspirational. We welcome those new to Judaism, interfaith couples and families, and those who have a long affiliation with the rich traditions of Conservative Judaism. We truly are egalitarian and welcoming to all! CNS is the oldest and largest Conservative synagogue in Portland.


We are located in the heart of Southwest Portland, easily accessible from all points in the metropolitan area in a beautiful facility that was totally modernized and updated in 2008 featuring the largest Jewish library in the Northwest, three chapels, a boutique-style gift shop, and plenty of parking.

isaakParshat haShavua: Terumah     Exodus 25:1- 27:19

The last 40% of the book of Exodus is unlike the first 60% that told the story of the Israelite enslavement, Moses' birth and commissioning at the Burning Bush, the ten plagues, the Exodus, the crossing of the Red Sea and the revelation at Mount Sinai. The last five parshiyot that we begin this week focusses almost exclusively on the construction of the portable Tabernacle in the desert, the religious items they are to contain and the vestments of the kohanim and the kohen gadol.
