Young Israel of Cherry Hill is an orthodox synagogue located on the West side of Cherry Hill that has been servicing the Cherry Hill Jewish community since 1996. With a strong love for Torah values, Young Israel of Cherry Hill aims to enrich the lives of the Jewish community with thought provoking shiurim, unbelievable programming and a warm, welcoming atmosphere.

      With the auspicious leadership of Rabbi Jonathan Bienenfeld, we are united in the service of Hashem and embrace the unique character and attributes of each member. We are one congregation, part of one people, serving one G-d b'simcha and b’ahavah. Through unification without uniformity, we are all one -  Kulanu K'echad.

We are:

  •  A shul that is fun and engaging

We believe that the practice of Judaism should be fun and upbeat! We are determined to maintain a shul in which davening, learning and growing together is a positive and enjoyable experience.

  • An incubator for spiritual growth

We encourage our members to suggest, initiate and manage innovative programming to advance Torah, mitzvos and acts of chesed. We take pride in our passion to grow and welcome great ideas!

  • A  community that feels like a family  

We run a wide array of events and activities for all ages because spending time together and enjoying one another’s company is what defines who we are.
