The Stanton Street Shul is a historic, intimate, and vibrant Orthodox congregation serving the diverse Jewish population in Lower Manhattan. We attract and welcome Jews of all religious, educational, and cultural backgrounds from the Lower East Side, Alphabet City, East and West Villages, Stuyvesant Town, and Tribeca.
The rabbinic search committee is excited to bring in another rabbinic candidate, Rabbi Aviad Bodner from Ranana, Israel, for a tryout on the Shabbat of August 22-23! We look forward to meeting Rabbi Bodner and his fiancee, Lindsay, on the Shabbat of Aug. 22-23. Look out for a detailed schedule of events, which will include a community dinner on Friday night and a seudah shlishit shiur.
The committee expects to make a decision about which rabbi to recommend by the end of the summer or early fall. Member feedback is essential, so please make an effort to answer the surveys about Rabbi Gabbai and Rabbi Frankel’s visits if you have not yet. If you are a shul member and have not received the surveys, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a way to honor Rabbi Yuter and provide him with a trove of memories from his time at Stanton Street, we are creating an online, digital journal where parting messages, thoughts, and well wishes will be posted for the rabbi to check from his new .co.il domain, and we’d like you to be a part of it.

Mincha will be held at 8:00 PM, and Ma’ariv and the reading of Eichah will take place at 8:45 PM. The fast starts at 8:09 PM.
There will be no services at Stanton on Tisha B’Av itself (Tuesday, August 5th).
It’s been five wonderful years with Rabbi Yuter as our spiritual (and often practical) leader, and we are planning a big kiddush to say goodbye in a meaningful way. Please save the date, Shabbat morning, July 26, which is Rabbi Yuter’s last official Shabbat as rabbi of the Stanton Street Shul (sigh).
