Congregation B’nai Yisrael is the Jewish home we share.

Congregation B’nai Yisrael (CBY) is a positive and open community for inspired Reform Judaism in northern Westchester.  Our family of families celebrates, commemorates, worships, learns, nurtures, gives, and grows together across all stages of life and for every walk of life. Our community is “a house of prayer for all people,” welcoming with open arms and hearts all who join us, including  interfaith families, Jews of color, the LGBTQ community, and people with different abilities. Anyone who wishes to experience the world through Jewish eyes will find a warm home at CBY.

Our Cornerstones


Congregation B’nai Yisrael connects individuals to our Jewish heritage and weaves our traditions into our individual and family identities.  Our religious traditions form a framework for meaningful Jewish lives, and help us to celebrate moments of wonder in life’s cycle and to find comfort in times of tragedy and sorrow.  Our spiritual home connects our members to that which is Divine, to the rich variety of Jewish living, and to others in our community.


Congregation B’nai Yisrael is the center of Jewish life in Armonk.  As a neighborhood synagogue, we form a bond among our member families.  The synagogue serves as a spiritual and a social center where individuals fulfill their religious needs and find meaning in Judaism at every stage of life. 


Learning the lessons of our Jewish heritage is a primary focus at Congregation B’nai Yisrael.  Together we discover the building blocks of Jewish life, expand our sense of self in a Jewish context, and apply Jewish wisdom to every stage of our journey.

Commitment to Others

The Jewish impulse to repair the world [Tikkun Olam] plays a central role in the life of our community.  We care for other human beings and strive to make a difference in people’s lives through individual and communal acts of tzedakah here in Armonk, in our wider Westchester community, and throughout our world.


We are deeply committed to maintaining our vibrant community.  We demonstrate our dedication by sharing our time and our resources to insure a healthy future for our synagogue.


Our clergy and leadership are accessible and responsive.  It is our responsibility to be deeply connected to one another, in order to hear what every individual and family needs, and learn how to strengthen our community.


From ancient times, Judaism has thrived by maintaining its traditions in an evolving world.  Our synagogue helps our families build contemporary Jewish lives.  Through celebration and study, by taking care of our own and reaching out to help others, by respecting every individual and embodying a spirit of diversity, we are able to be authentic Jews in a modern world.
