About Our Congregation

The Young Israel of Greater Buffalo has brought Torah-true Judaism to Western New York and Buffalo for almost 50 years. Our congregation is a diverse mix of native Buffalonians and transplants, FFBs and baalei t'shuvah.

Located on Maple Road in the northern suburb of Amherst and minutes from the main campus of the State University of New York at Buffalo, we are a convenient stopping point for travelers from New York City and Toronto, especially during the summer months, when our proximity to Niagara Falls and Niagara-on-the-Lake is a big draw.
