Rabbi’s Corner

Dear Friends,

I must apologize for the brevity of this week’s Rabbi’s Corner.  I have just returned this morning from a visit to the Jewish communities of Medellin Colombia where I assisted in the conversions of 11 individuals and met with a new Jewish community in the town of Bello.  I hope to share my experiences and perspectives with the kehillah over the next few weeks.

In the meantime I would like to note that due to requests we will be moving our Friday night davening to 7:00pm to accommodate those who wish to have their Shabbat Dinner at a more reasonable hour.  I ask everyone to please make an effort to attend punctually for this and every other service.

And finally I wish everyone a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day!

Shabbat Shalom!

Rabbi Josh Yuter

Stanton Street Shul Hosts Volunteer/Mitzvah Day!

On May 16th, The Stanton Street Shul teamed up with Temple Shaaray Tefilah for a joint Volunteer Mitzvah Day. Energetic teams from both shuls came out on a gorgeous Sunday to give our Shul a much needed spring cleaning and TLC in preparation for the upcoming Shavuot holiday. All volunteers were treated to a classic LES lunch featuring our neighborhood’s famous bagels and bialys and some great shmoozing with new friends!

Special thanks to all organizers and Temple Shaaray Tefilah, and we hope to see you at our next Volunteer Day!
