As a Congregation we emphasize unity, and welcome Jews of all backgrounds to join our services and become an active part of our community. The centrality of our location in downtown Manhattan attracts thousands of diverse Jews from around the world seeking a warm and inviting atmosphere where prayer and friendship are cherished.  Our proximity to many of the nation’s leading universities allow us unprecedented access to a young and enlightened student population which is increasingly seeking a vibrant Jewish communal life, coupled with Torah observance in the classical Sephardic tradition. The scholarship that we offer at CMDM encourages broad thinking, and addresses the lasting contributions of Rabbis and scholars. At CMDM we are dedicated to the promotion of positive Jewish values which define our mission of inclusion, kindness, integrity, and scholarship.
