Welcome
Our Community

Welcome...

  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.

Welcome...

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: Shmot   Genesis 1:1-6:1

We begin this week the Book of Exodus.
A Pharaoh arose who knew not Joseph. Threatened by their increasing numbers, he decided to enslave them, but the more they were oppressed the more they increased. He told the midwives of the Israelites to kill all the males, but they were God fearing and defied Pharaoh. Pharaoh ordered all male infants be thrown into the Nile.
