For the Traveler

  • Religious services

    Our beautiful synagogue arranges services for travelers departing and arriving, as well as airport personnel and visitors. Contact Rabbi Ari Korenblit for particulars.

  • Meeting/resting place

    Both the chapel and conference room are available for informal or formal gatherings. The chapel is a quiet, relaxing space for spending time waiting for a flight, in between flights, and while waiting for arriving or departing travelers. Amidst the tumult of a major transportation hub, it is a veritable oasis; perfect for prayer, meditation and reflection. The synagogue library contains a variety of Seforim (religious texts,) and Judaica in Hebrew and English.

  • Holiday celebrations

    Fun and exciting activities are scheduled for important Jewish holidays like Channukah and Purim.

  • Mourner services

    Our staff attends to mourners as grieving families await a coffin’s transport for burial in Israel.

  • Torah study classes

  • Availability of Kosher food in the terminal

    The synagogue can direct you to kosher food locations. In addition, the Rabbi continues to advocate for kosher food availability at JFK including the establishment of a glatt kosher food vendor at terminal 4.

  • Resource for Halachah of Jewish travel

    Provide online information to help you through your journeys.

  • Rabbinic counseling

    Rabbi Korenblit provides counseling for travelers in grief due to a loss; for parents parting with children making Aliyah, or departing for a year’s study or summer camp in Israel. Rabbi Korenblit is available to assist with all airport and travel emergencies.
