Woodlands Community Temple is a Reform Jewish congregation nestled in the woods of Greenburgh, New York (near White Plains, Ardsley, Dobbs Ferry, Edgemont, Hastings, Irvington, and Tarrytown). Founded in 1966, we are a vibrant, resourceful, multigenerational community of modern Jews committed to creating a dynamic, innovative environment for all who wish to participate in Jewish life and ritual—regardless of age or sexual orientation. Welcoming, outgoing, and member-run, Woodlands is a place that amply provides for the educational and spiritual needs of its membership while at the same time enlisting its congregants to do good works that benefit an ever more complicated world at large.
