Welcome to Congregation Sha'arey Israel

We are an egalitarian synagogue dedicated to the celebration of Conservative Judaism and Jewish Life in Middle Georgia. CSI is a 100+ year-old community which has strengthened over the years because of our dynamic programs and worship services and because of the warm and dedicated families who call CSI home.  We are so glad that you are visiting our website and hope that you will come see us in Macon. After all, Congregation Sha’arey Israel is how you say Hamish in Southern!

Out of an abundance of caution, for the foreseeable future, Congregation Sha’arey Israel will hold davening services via Zoom. Please contact the CSI office for login information. 478-745-4571 or email Secretary@csimacon.org
