The Young Israel of Greater
Buffalo has brought Torah-true Judaism to Western New York and Buffalo
for over 35 years. Our congregation is a diverse mix of native
Buffalonians and transplants, FFBs and baalei t'shuvah.
Located on Maple Road
in the northern suburb of Williamsville and minutes from the main
campus of the State University of New York at Buffalo, we are a
convenient stopping point for travelers from New York City and Toronto,
especially during the summer months, when our proximity to Niagara
Falls and Niagara-on-the-Lake is a big draw.
We are a growing community with much to be proud of: a
beautiful building, our beloved and
learned young Rabbi, and an atmosphere of friendship and
community that larger congregations can't match.
In addition to our services, we have all of the amenities of a larger
shul. We support three daily and Shabbat minyanim, evening classes for
men and women, Shabbat classes during the long afternoons of spring and
summer, and communal luncheons and other special programs for many of
the holidays. See the Calendar
page for daily davening times.
