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.


We wish a Mazal Tov to our members, Shahla & Barry Weiner, on the birth, Brit, and naming of a grandson, Miles Haskel William Frankel, born to Roya & Ari Frankel.

High Holy Days/Membership Drive:  Rosh Hashana is less than six 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


Should you prefer, membership payments may be made in installments. This can be easily set up through our website:

  • For Membership Renewal, please click here
  • For New Members, please click here

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 Rabbi Bellino who will read this week. The next available Mincha leining is on August 11th (the afternoon reading is Shofetim). 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 August 11th (Re'eh).
