The congregation is the successor to many shuls that have merged over the past 102 years. Its official title is Mount Sinai Anshe Emeth, Emez Wozedek Jewish Center of Washington Heights & Beth Hillel & Beth Israel.[1]

Since 2002, Mount Sinai has seen a massive resurgence due to the influx of many young, religious Jews moving to the neighborhood.[2]


The current rabbi is Rabbi Yaacov Taubes[3], who previously served as OU/JLIC Rabbi at the University of Pennsylvania [4]

Mount Sinai offers a wide range of programming for the Washington Heights Jewish community, including prayer services, lectures and programs for children, singles, families and seniors.[1]
