Originating in 1990 as a dwelling for a few wandering and devout-seeking congregants, Manhattan Sephardic Congregation (MSC) has grown to become a full-time venue for Sephardic worship, flavored with a Moroccan flair. With an array of adult education classes, daily services (morning and evening), as well as Shabbat and Holidays, visiting lectures, singles events, children's programs and other exciting activities, MSC offers a warm, inviting, spirited communal outlet for all Jewish people.

Recognizing the growth and success which our community has enjoyed, as well as the need for a permanent home for our congregation, MSC has, in 1995, purchased a five-story building located on East 75th Street. While this goal may have been a bit ambitious for such a young congregation, the growing popularity and member enthusiasm has necessitated the creation of a full service community center. Recently, we have seen a complete makeover of the Manhattan Sephardic Congregation. The Synagogue's first and second floor have been renovated in a magnificent and beautiful way. The third floor social hall has likewise been renovated. (Photos of our Synagogue)

In its short history, MSC has hosted great dignitaries and personalities as well as world renown rabbis: Among them, Chief Sephardic Rabbis of Israel, Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu and Rabbi Bakshi Doron, Chief Rabbi of France, Rabbi Yosef Sitruk, famed Kabbalist Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri, Rabbi Shalom Messas, ZT"L, Former Foreign Minister of Israel, Mr. David Levy and many other MKs and dignitaries from Israel, Morocco and the United States.

Throughout the millennia, our Jewish brethren have made great contributions and sacrifices for the preservation of our rich heritage so that their children and future generations would embrace and safeguard our precious history, practices and unique role in this world. We invite members and non-members alike to perform what is perhaps one of the most significant Mitzvot of all, to be founders and partners in this entity that is dedicated to the perpetuation of Jewish ideals, legacies that have withstood the test of time. We invite you to take full advantage of this joyful and exciting opportunity, to invest in our proud tradition
