Welcome to Cape Cod Synagogue
Your Home for Reform Judaism on Cape Cod

For over 85 years Cape Cod Synagogue has sustained a dynamic culture for Reform Jewish identity on the Cape while being a prominent organization that helps individuals and families regardless of their religious affiliation. Under the leadership of Rabbi David Freelund for the past 16 years, Cape Cod Synagogue has made significant contributions in response to important social justice issues and needs that affect all of our residents. Cape Cod Synagogue is welcoming and inclusive of the LGBTQ community; has been instrumental in providing for the homeless, ailing, and those experiencing hardship, helping numerous families with their individual needs. For over 30 years, Cape Cod Synagogue provides a community-wide dinner on Christmas Day annually for the greater community in need as well as monthly dinners to St. Joseph’s House. Cape Cod Synagogue also plays a leading role in the interfaith community by taking part in, and hosting services and programs throughout the year.

הִנֵּה מַה טוֹב וּמַה נָּעִים שֶׁבֶת אָחִים גַּם יַחַד
Hinneh mah tov umah na’im, Shevet achim gam yachad
How good and how pleasing it is for brothers and sisters to sit together in unity.
