Who are we?

Our Rabbis

Rabbi Manfred Gans has been leading our congregation since 1950, delivering eloquent and thought provoking speeches as well as legendary personal attention to the needs of each and every member.
Rabbi Yossi Mendelson has been with our congregation since 2010. His warm likeable personality as well as his interactive, lively and accessible services, sermons, and classes are really one of a kind.
Rabbi Gans and Rabbi Mendelson are both "peoples' Rabbis" who cherish their roles as community leaders.

Our Community

Machane Chodosh has distinguished itself as a warm and inviting community consisting of many types of families and singles ranging across a wide spectrum of age and religious observance. Together we pray, share meals and share simchas (happy occasions.) It is not uncommon to see people spanning 4 generations sitting at the same table or pew. When this Shul was founded, it was self-evident everyone was treated and respected equally regardless of level of religious observance. This principle carries on. When you walk through the Shul door, you are accorded the same Derech Eretz (respect) as anyone else.

Our History

Congregation Machane Chodosh was formed by refugees from Germany, many of whom narrowly missing the decimation of German Jewry in Holocaust. Our Shul is committed to carrying forward a tradition that was almost completely eradicated by the Nazis. As a member of Machane Chodosh, you will take part in carrying Judaism forward to the next generation.
