About Us

Congregation Sons of Israel is an Orthodox synagogue located in Allentown, Pennsylvania, in the heart of the beautiful Lehigh Valley. Founded in 1902 by about 25 Jewish residents, SOI has grown into a flourishing Orthodox community with over 180 member families. Our synagogue offers weekly Shabbat and Holiday services as well as daily minyanim for Shacharit and Mincha/Maariv.

Classes on a variety of Torah subjects, including a Daf Yomi shiur, are offered regularly by our Rabbi, scholars-in-residence, and community members. Well-attended social events, such as weekly kiddushes, Friday night dinners, Jewish music concerts, Purim carnivals, and annual shul banquets, help foster a warm, welcoming community. Activities for youth include Shabbat groups, pre-holiday arts and crafts, and dynamic holiday outings. SOI members can also take advantage of Allentown’s Eruv, Mikvah, day school and JCC, along with easy access to Kosher food.

Being a part of Congregation Sons of Israel provides access to a Torah-committed, vibrant Jewish community. We welcome you to learn more about us!
