Welcome to Congregation Shaarey Tphiloh!
Congregation Shaarey Tphiloh, known locally as the Noyes Street Shul, is Portland, Maine’s oldest continuously operating synagogue. Founded in 1904 on Newbury Street in Portland’s Old Port, we moved to Noyes Street in 1954. We are a Modern Orthodox synagogue.
Our community is an open, warm, and caring one. We value Jewish learning and spiritual growth as lifelong pursuits. The principle of HaChanassat Orchim–the welcoming of strangers―is greatly valued. We welcome new comers to our prayer services and all are invited to participate in our community events.
