What we're about

Have you been wandering in the desert in search of like-minded LGBTQ Jews? We feel your struggle.

Aleinu is the 20s/30s group within Congregation Beit Simchat Torah (CBST) in New York City. Connect with us. Hang with us. Eat with us. Join us for a Shabbat dinner after services - we always have a great time.

Side note: Congregation Beit Simchat Torah (CBST) is a vibrant spiritual community and a progressive voice within ‎Judaism. Founded in 1973, CBST attracts and welcomes gay men, lesbians, bisexuals, transgender, ‎queer and straight individuals and families who share common values.

Want to come to a service? Check out our brand-new building at 130 West 30th Street (between 6th and 7th Avenues). Services usually start at 6:30 PM, but feel free to check the calendar on CBST's site (cbst.org).
