History

As the only Synagogue in Hoboken, New Jersey, today the United Synagogue of Hoboken gives living expression to over 135 years of Jewish settlement in our community.

The Star of Israel community is both old and youthful at the same time; we represent the survival of a local Jewish community and an historic house of worship. It's what makes us different.
