The United Synagogue of Hoboken is a Conservative synagogue in Hoboken, New Jersey, "in the heart of the gentrified part of Hoboken."[1]


In 1946 The Hoboken Jewish Center and The Star of Israel Synagogue merged to form The United Synagogue of Hoboken.[3] Originally, Moses Montefiore Synagogue had been invited to join the merger, but it declined when it learned that there would be mixed seating for religious services.


The 1915 building of the Congregation Star of Israel is among the oldest synagogue buildings in New Jersey. It was closed for two decades before being reopened in 1989. It continues in use by the congregation. A thorough external restoration was completed in 2009 with the assistance of a $280,000 matching grant from the New Jersey Historic Trust.[2] The synagogue is listed on both the NJ Register of Historic Places and the National Register of Historic Places.[3]
