ABOUT US

We are a vibrant, warm, and growing community, centrally located 10 minutes from Philadelphia and within commuting distance to NY city and Central NJ.  Cherry Hill is an amazing place to live, and our shul has helped promote every resource an Orthodox family could want: eruv, mikvah, Va'ad HaKashrut, Chevra Kadisha, kosher shopping and dining, and much more.  The Modern Orthodox community is flourishing with excellent Jewish Day Schools and extensive learning opportunities.  Most importantly, our synagogue embraces people of all backgrounds and levels of observance, creating a spirited kehilah that makes our members very proud to be here.  We warmly welcome you to join us for a visit and to consider making Cherry Hill and Congregation Sons of Israel  your home as well.

Our Clergy

                            Rabbi Michael Z. Davies

Rabbi Davies grew up in New Jersey where he attended Yeshiva day school and high school. He spent two years studying in Israel after high school, then went on to receive his Bachelors Degree in accounting from Yeshiva University. He completed his studies for ordination at the Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary which included an additional two years of study in Israel. As part of his studies, he interned at Ramaz Upper School of Manhattan, East Hill Synagogue in Englewood, NJ and the Riverdale Jewish Center in Bronx, NY.  He spent 5 years as the Associate Rabbi at Beth Jacob Congregation in Oakland, California and 9 years at Congregation Dor Tikvah in Charleston.

Rabbi Davies has particular interest in Youth Education and Programming. He pulls from his studies as a member of Yeshiva University’s Experiential Jewish Education Certificate Program. Rabbi Davies hopes to build on the existing  youth programs of SOI.  "The kids are the future of our community. It's so important to help them to be involved and excited about being a part of it." 

Rabbi Davies, Ora, and their children are very excited to be a part of Congregation Sons of Israel.  He grew up in the area and has very fond memories of Cherry Hill and NCSY's Simchaton. 


Rabbi Davies can be contacted at rabbi@soicherryhill.org and can be reached by phone at 856-667-9700 ext. 2.

Welcome to Congregation Sons of Israel. We are a synagogue with a rich tradition and a vibrant future. We have an
unwavering commitment to Torah and Israel. We are the heart and soul of the South Jersey Orthodox community.  As a warm, friendly community, we are known for our hospitality to newcomers and where individuals connect to other members to feel supported, valued, and uplifted through friendship. We provide an environment where all members are encouraged to grow in Torah and Mitzvot. 

Congregation Sons of Israel has much to offer for those looking to find a place they can call home. Our campus offers a newly renovated sanctuary, growing day school, and community Mikvah. We also coordinate Kashrut supervision, Cherry Hill West Side Eruv, Sisterhood, and Chevra Kadisha. There are multiple daily Minyanim, and learning opportunities throughout the week and Shabbat. A men’s softball team. Youth groups. Scholars-in-residence. We’ve got it all.

Cherry Hill: Big enough to serve you, Small enough to care!
