Congregation Kadimah-Toras Moshe of Brighton
Congregation Kadimah-Toras Moshe was founded in 1941 and was the first Orthodox Synagogue in Brighton. It was originally known as “Congregation Kadimah,” but the name was changed when it merged with “Congregation Toras Moshe” of Roxbury in 1960. This congregation is self-described as a “vibrant Orthodox community where all are welcome.”
Kadimah-Toras Moshe currently resides in a renovated house, with plans to move next door to a newly constructed building. The current sanctuary space consists of both men and women’s sections with a mechitza used as a divider. According to the congregation’s president, Susan Miller, the mechitza height was raised about 45 years ago to accommodate the sensibilities of the congregation. The new building will feature a central mechitza.
