About Us

The Prospect Heights Shul is a warm and diverse Modern Orthodox community that exists to create meaningful relationships among its members and with G-d, to foster personal and spiritual growth, and to care for those who are marginalized both within our community and beyond.

The shul was founded in summer of 2011 by Rabbi Aaron Finkelstein and members of the community. Since its establishment, it has grown from a small number of dedicated individuals to a flourishing community of nearly one hundred families. After years of being lay-led, the shul now has Rabbi Jonathan Leener as its Rabbi and the spiritual leader of the congregation. The shul community is comprised of a variety of demographics, backgrounds, and religious viewpoints. We work together to build a rich and vibrant community that is welcoming to all.
