Editor’s Note: In the 5 years since I wrote this post, website design and what is considered an outstanding synagogue website design have changed considerably. The post below is no longer an accurate reflection of these trends, so I would encourage you to read my updated list of the 22 best Conservative synagogue websites, 2016 version, instead.
With over 600 affiliated synagogues across the United States and Canada, the Conservative movement is one of the largest synagogue movements in North America.
With such numbers, there were plenty of websites to choose from when putting together this list. A significant portion of the Conservative synagogue websites that I looked through were in the “good” to “above average” range. There were also a lot of websites that required a lot of work and showed it, but that’s understandable considering a lot of smaller synagogues don’t necessarily have the resources to help with websites that larger ones do.
(I should add that a great synagogue website isn’t just about the design – it’s about the content as well, and incorporates many of my 18 successful elements of synagogue websites.)
Without further ado, here is my list of 22 of the best Conservative synagogue websites that I came across, listed alphabetically first by country and then by state.
