Stanton’s Pre-Shavuot Community Shabbat Dinner!

3 days of Chag! Who has time to prepare and cook so many meals???

Don’t worry- the Stanton Street Shul took care of the first one for you!

We hope you can join us for Shabbat dinner (Friday night)! We will have services at 7:30, followed by dinner at (around) 8:30. The dinner costs $35 per person ($30 for Stanton members). Sponsorship opportunities are also available for $100 (and include dinner for two). You can register and pay for the dinner here: http://www.stantonstshul.com/shop-donate/

Registration will close at noon on Tuesday, May 19, so we can place the correct order. Limited space, please register ASAP to ensure a place at the table!

If you have any questions or feedback, or would like to coordinate future events, please send an email to events@stantonstshul.com. We look forward to seeing you there!

Check Us Out!: Sacred Sites Open House Weekend

We are honored to be included in the NY Landmarks Conservancy Sacred Sites Open House Weekend! It’s this weekend, May 16-17, and we are inviting the public to our shul on Shabbat morning for services and kiddush, and tours from 1-2pm. (Yes, the public is always invited to services and kiddush on Shabbat morning, but this week it’s being advertised to a slightly different and broader crowd, so expect some more unfamiliar faces than usual. And be nice!)
Watch the video below for more info about the program and click here for a complete list of participating sites in NYC. We extend a HUGE thank you to Elissa Sampson for including us in this special weekend and for volunteering to give tours of the shul to visitors (congregants are welcome on tours, too!).
