About Us

The Roslyn Synagogue, a member of the Orthodox Union, is a friendly and welcoming synagogue in Roslyn Heights, Long Island. Jews of all levels of observance are welcome. The Roslyn Synagogue opened in 1976 and is led by Rabbi Yoni Danzger.

The Roslyn Synagogue has a 10-square mile eruv that surrounds a major part of the Greater Roslyn area.

The entire Roslyn Synagogue community feels a sense of pride in our shul which has become a place of rejoicing; a place where all come together to daven, study, eat, and socialize. It is a place where Judaism is experienced with joy, camaraderie, pride, and gladness; where guests feel welcome when they arrive, and usually leave with a smile.

In the tradition of Abraham and Sarah, the Roslyn Synagogue welcomes all visitors and guests.  If you are in need of hospitality for Shabbat or a holiday, please contact us.

The Danzgers are the proud parents of Meir Yehuda, Raizy, Aharon Dovi, and Hadassah.

With a true desire to help the Jewish people, the Danzgers have been able to bring their love and passion to many different communities. Rabbi Danzger has served as Rabbinic Intern at Congregation Ohr Torah in Edison, New Jersey, at Mount Sinai Jewish Center in Washington Heights, New York, and Congregation Keter Torah in Teaneck, New Jersey. Each of these experiences has taught them so much about serving the community and has bolstered their desire to join the rabbinate. In 2018, Rabbi Danzger became the Assistant Rabbi at Beth Jacob Congregation in San Diego, California. Under the mentorship of Rabbi Avraham Bogopulsky, Rabbi Danzger honed his rabbinic skills and learned what it means to be completely devoted to the community.

In July, 2021, Rabbi Danzger took up the mantle of Rabbi of The Roslyn Synagogue. The Danzgers are excited to be part of The Roslyn Synagogue and look forward to sharing their passion with the Roslyn community.
