Chanu-Karaoke and Ugly Sweater-Off Chanukah Party on December 12

Celebrate Chanukah in true Stanton fashion—with candlelight, karaoke, and your favorite objectionable sweater! Come sing, mingle, and have a l’chaim with friends old and new on Saturday night, December 12. Or just sit back and enjoy the spectacle with a jelly doughnut in one hand and a belly-warming drink in the other as you ridicule one another’s sweaters, critique each other’s song choices, and debate the merits of imported vs. domestic olive oil.

Bring your ugliest sweater, your sense of irony and your friends. All are welcome.

Alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks and snacks will be served! Ugliest Sweater prizes will be awarded!

$15 in advance, $18 at the door.
Songs are $3 each; your first song is free.
Sponsorships are available for $50. We appreciate your generosity!

New Winter Shabbat Schedule at Stanton

Don’t let the early nightfall get you down. Take advantage of our new Winter Shabbat schedule; because while it may be dark outside, the sun is always shining at Stanton (figuratively speaking). Through the winter months, we will be davening Kabbalat Shabbat at 5:20pm, so those who are rushing home right before Shabbat can have a chance to relax and still get to shul for minyan. For those who are able to make it to shul earlier, Rabbi Bodner will be teaching a gemara class on the Tractate of Megillah, starting ten minutes after candle lighting. This week that is 4:30pm. Talmud novices and experts, men and women, are equally welcome!

On Shabbat day, continuing through the winter months, we will be davening mincha right after kiddush, at around 12:30pm, so even if you wake up late you still have a reason to come to shul. Until further notice, we will not be meeting for Ma’ariv on Shabbat evenings, and Rabbi Bodner will not be teaching his Shabbat afternoon class on Tefila.
Please keep this new schedule in mind, spread the word about our lateFriday night minyan, and keep the spiritual light shining at Stanton through the dark winter.
