News

In these tragic and scary times we stand with all those victimized by senseless hatred and fanaticism, at home, in Israel, and abroad. We pray for safety, healing, and peace.


Our Tot Shabbat program last Shabbat was engaging, fun, and educational, and we thank all the parents and children who participated. We are especially grateful to Ashira Lubkin for leading the program, and to Alan Feder and Annie & Jeremy Watman for all their efforts in arranging the program.

High Holy Days/Membership Drive: Rosh Hashana is less than four weeks away, and so we ask that you renew your commitment to our synagogue in the form of Membership. Membership dues go a long way in making possible all of our synagogue's accomplishments. Won't you please share in our great legacy and help us continue our impressive revitalization?


There are, of course, various membership options and we hope that one works for you.


Family Membership: $900 (Includes 2 High Holy Day Tickets)
Individual Membership: $500 (Includes 1 High Holy Day Ticket)
Associate Membership: $300 (For those with membership at another synagogue)
Student Membership: $150

We will make every effort to preserve your customary seats. Additional seats for members are $125 and all seats for non-members are $250To reserve an additional seat or to reserve a non-member seat, please go to the donate page on our website.

 

You can also mail a check to 325 East 6th Street, New York, NY 10003. Should you have any questions, please contact our treasurer, Alan Schwartz, or our Rabbi.

 

Torah Readers: We are looking for men who can prepare to read at Shabbat Mincha (and possibly at Shacharit during the week as well) throughout the year. A schedule of readers is being maintained. If you can commit to any dates, please contact Rabbi Bellino. We are grateful to Neil Kitainik who will read this week. The next available Mincha leining is on August 25th (the afternoon reading is Ki Tavo). We are looking for women to prepare aliyot for a Women’s Torah Reading  in the near future. Rabbi Bellino is happy to help anyone learn how to prepare a reading.


Recycling: Please make sure that all bottles, cans, and tins, are placed in the blue recycling bin in the social hall. We can be fined by the city for not separating out our garbage for recycling, and your help will save our maintenance staff a lot of work, and the synagogue some money.

Please continue to assist our weekday morning Minyan. Consider increasing your commitment to community and synagogue by attending.


Our plentiful and delicious Kiddushes on Sixth Street greatly enhance our synagogue and community. To sponsor or to co-sponsor a Friday night Kiddush, a Shabbat Kiddush, a Shabbocktail, our Shabbat Shabeer supply, or a Seudah Shelishit, contact Rabbi Bellino. The next available Shabbat Kiddush for sponsorship is September 22nd (Ha'azinu).

A Jewish Approach to Sexuality and Intimacy

Tuesday, June 19, 2018

8:00 PM - 9:30 PM


​​​Join the women of our community for an open discussion and learning opportunity with our downtown Yoetzet Halacha, Shiffy Friedman. We will explore the Jewish approach to sexuality, intimacy, and the Jewish ethic around consent. We will also use common questions received by Yoatzot Halacha as a framework to discuss physical and emotional challenges that arise in the most intimate area of a relationship. 

Please note that the correct start time is 8:00 PM.

This event is open to all women - married and unmarried - and will be a safe place for questions and answers. Feel free to bring your questions, or email them in advance to nycyoetzet@gmail.com, or submit them anonymously at Tinyurl.com/yoetzetQandA


The event has been sponsored by Adina & Henry Frank, in memory of Adina's mother, Bea Haims.


Shiffy Friedman graduated from Nishmat’s Miriam Glaubach Center’s U.S. Yoatzot Halacha Fellows Program in 2015. She has been counseling women in the area of women's health and halacha, both through her role as Yoetzet  Halacha in Westchester County and through teaching brides and couples before marriage. Shiffy has taught at SAR Academy and currently teaches at Ma'ayanot Yeshiva High School. She received her B.A. in Judaic studies from Stern College and a dual M.A. in Education and Jewish Studies from New York University. Prior to that, she spent a year studying in Israel at the Stella K. Abraham Beit Midrash for Women in Migdal Oz. She and her husband, Rabbi Noam Friedman, live with their two children, Avital and Adir, in Morningside Heights, where they serve as the OU-JLIC couple at Columbia/Barnard Hillel.
