The First Roumanian-American congregation,[11] also known as Congregation Shaarey Shomayim[12] (Hebrew: שַׁעֲרֵי שָׁמַיִם‎‎, "Gates of Heaven"), or the Roumanishe Shul,[13] (Yiddish for "Romanian synagogue") is an Orthodox Jewish congregation which, for over 100 years, occupied an historic building at 89–93 Rivington Street on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, New York.

Those who organized the congregation in 1885[14] were part of a substantial wave of Romanian-Jewish immigrants,[15][16] most of whom settled in the Lower East Side.[17] The Rivington Street building, built around 1860, had previously been a church, then a synagogue, then a church again, and had been extensively remodeled in 1889.[18] It was transformed into a synagogue for a second time when the First Roumanian-American congregation purchased it in 1902 and again remodeled it.[5]
