Why We Love Living Here

It has the culture of a city three times it size. Music, arts, parks... but no traffic.

This was the most amazing place to raise a family.

About Us

50 New Rochester Families is an initiative of Congregation Beth Sholom and Rabbi Dov Winston. Since our shul was established in 1929, Congregation Beth Sholom has been a leader and a foundation for the Jewish community in Rochester. It’s our bold goal to welcome 50 new families to build the next chapter of our storied Rochester community in the next 5 years.
