The Reform Temple of Forest Hills

Visiting RTFH

Services at RTFH encourage us to connect, reflect, and celebrate together. If you’re planning to attend a service at The Reform Temple of Forest Hills, you'll be welcomed by an inclusive and friendly community. Here's what you can expect!


Registration isn’t required to visit, but we’d love to know that you’re joining us for the first time. We encourage you to call the office to let us know you’re coming!

As you approach our building for a service, you’ll see our wonderful and vigilant security team. RTFH greeters are right inside the front door and will welcome  and guide you and your family to the sanctuary.


We’re relatable. You’ll find the frequent use of English alongside Hebrew, fully transliterated, in all of our liturgy, songs, and prayer books. We also provide a translated copy of the Torah for use as you follow along with clergy or perhaps the B’nai Mitzvah student.

Equal Participation

We’re an egalitarian and inclusive spiritual community. Men and women can sit together and participate equally in our services, as can interfaith family members, including on the bimah.


After the service, we invite you to stay and chat at one of our delicious onegs! We enjoy speaking with visitors in our beautiful ballroom and often serve a variety of baked goods and beverages. You’ll find plenty of seating and folks to talk about your weekend plans.

Keep in Touch

Registration is not required to visit, but we’re happy to take your contact information and keep connected after your visit. We frequently send out programming and event details via email, as well as weekly communication from our Rabbi and Cantor.


Street parking is available. RTFH is also located within walking distance of the E, F, R, and M subways. Nearby bus lines include the Q60, Q23, Q65, and the Forest Hills LIRR station. Paid parking lots are also available on Queens Blvd.
