Summary

Known formally as ‘The First Hungarian Congregation Ohab Zedek’, the synagogue has, like most of its congregants, schlepped to various places across the city: established on the Lower East Side, before moving to Norfolk Street, then Harlem, it has settled – and stayed put – at its current location at 118 West 95th Street. Harking back to other areas of Jewish history (and another of our very own blogs! (poss link here to ‘Spain quarters’ blog), it is built in a striking Spanish-Moorish style. On an important side-note, it’s also rather well-known for attracting large numbers of Orthodox Jewish singles. They say Orthodox Jewish dating in New York is tricky. Here’s the solution!
