Congregation Ramath Orah means a lot of things to its members. It’s a place of worship. A place of study. A place to see your friends. And a place to make new ones. The Upper West Side’s best kept secret.
For each of us, Ramath Orah has become a home. A place where we have not only met new friends, but made new family.

At Ramath Orah the religious observance and learning of every congregant and guest is valued and respected. I love the fact that Torah, mitzvot and its discourse, belongs to every Jew here.
Ramath Orah manages the rare feat of combining an open and progressive hashkafah (outlook) with a high level of Torah learning and commitment to halachah (Jewish Law).
Thanks to the Rabbis and the thoughtful congregants, Bikur cholim (visiting the sick) has become important in our community. I enjoy the visitors’ company on Shabbat.
When I look around, I am not the only non-white face in the room. People are kind, intelligent, and worldly, and all these are highly-esteemed values in the community.
