We like to think we're different. Everyone from the traditionally Orthodox to the occasionally observant feels at home here - 365 days a year. We hope you do too.

We are looking forward to tonight's Annual Dinner when we will honor our Rabbi, Gavriel Bellino, and celebrate his ten years of service. The Dinner will be held at the Union Square Ballroom (27 Union Square West).

If you are unable to attend, you may still join us in this very important fundraising effort. To do so, please email your pledge or make a payment on the website. We remind you that any amount helps our efforts and will lift our spirits.

As always, Rabbi Bellino will celebrate your participation by publicly toasting you. What better incentive is there?
