Community News

The weekday Mincha/Maariv minyan has been struggling more and more. As a result, we have no choice but to cease to provide this service for the community, knowing that most times, we're not actually providing the service requested. After March 8, we will no longer offer a weekday Mincha/Maariv minyan. If you need to request a minyan, please check online for times at nearby synagogues, or use our Discussion Board. A separate email will go out soon.


We are proud to be a member synagogue of The Downtown Va'ad, an Orthodox rabbinic network, founded by Rabbis Sarna & Bellino, intended to advance the welfare and flourishing of the Downtown Jewish community. For more information or to learn about Downtown happenings and collaborative efforts, follow the Va'ad on Facebook.



Purim is just a few days away! Here is an outline of our programs and events, starting this Sunday:

Mishloach Manot: The deadline to participate in our Mishloach Manot fundraiser is TOMORROW (February 27) at 12:00 PM. We have collaborated with a chocolatier in Brooklyn  and packages are available in three sizes according to sponsorship level: $180, $118, and $54. To order, email with your level of sponsorship.

Kids' Purim Party: Sunday, March 1 from 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM. Arts and crafts activities including mask making and balloon animals, as well as refreshments will be available. This party is open to everyone in the community at large -- no membership required.









Megilla Reading and Purim Party: On Purim night (March 4), we will daven Maariv and read the Megilla at 6:30 PM, to be immediately followed by our Purim Party. This year's theme is "That '70s Shul." Be sure to dress in your grooviest '70s threads or as the raddest '70s icon. Disco Fever... Dynomite! At 10:00 PM we will welcome the University of Purim, who will be hosting an additional party.

Purim Day and Seuda: On Purim Day (March 5), we will offer two morning Megillah readings in the morning and a Purim Seuda in the afternoon. Click here to RSVP to the Seuda\.



Foundations and Thoughts of Maimonides classes will not meet next week due to Purim.

On Sunday, March 1we will welcome Rabbi Sam Intrator who will be leading a discussion of the Stories of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach. The event will run from 1:00 - 4:00 PM. Later on in the evening there will be a concert starting at 6:30 PM. Click here for more information.

The third installment of the Monday Night Lecture Series will be March 9 at 7:00 PM with Carole Basri: "From the Ethnic Cleansing of the Iraqi Jews to ISIS: Lessons Learned." Pizza and beer will be served. RSVP by March 8.



We encourage your participation and insight. Feedback to Elie Yudewitz, Rabbi Bellino or the Shul Office would be most appreciated. Please contact us with any suggestions and/or concerns, or most importantly, to volunteer. You can also make suggestions here.
