Stanton's Mishloach Manot Project

Mishloach Manot, sending food gifts to friends and family, is one of the four Mitzvot performed on Purim. It is a heartfelt way to emphasize the Jewish unity that lies at the core of the Purim holiday, and to create meaningful connections within our own community at the same time. Through Stanton's Mishloach Manot project, you can participate in giving a beautiful gift basket to your friends and family at Stanton, which they will receive on Purim when they come to shul.

 

If you are a shul member, you should have received an email this week with your personal log-in code and instructions for how to participate in the project. If you didn't receive an email and want to participate, please contact us at office@stantonstshul.com ASAP.

 

Please sign up by March 1, 2017, in order to participate in the project!

Sharing the Purim Spirit: Matanot La'Evyonim

Before we can make our own plans to enjoy the holiday of Purim, we need to make sure others can enjoy it as well. Matanot la'evyonim, giving to the poor, is a central mitzvah of Purim. You can give matanot la'evyonim through Stanton: We plan on distributing funds to many organizations and individuals who need our support. We encourage you to make your donation in advance of the holiday so that we know how much will be able to distribute on Purim. Please give online on our website by clicking here.

Memorial Service for Ron Tarablous, z"l

Please join us for a memorial service in memory of Ron Tarablous, Z"l, at the Stanton Street Shul, on Thursday Night, March 2, at 7:00 pm.

If you are interested in saying a few words in his memory, please email Anat: varon.anat@gmail.com

Volunteering at Stanton

One of the many strengths of our shul is the variety and multiple talents and abilities of our congregants. It takes a lot to run our shul and our programming, and we can probably use your help. Are you a tech guru, web design aficionado, or social media wiz? A master event planner, fundraiser, or program coordinator? An accountant, lawyer, or investment professional? A trained carpenter, electrician, or contractor? If you have any of these or other skills, professional or amateur, that you'd like to contribute to Stanton, speak to Rabbi Bodner, Rivky Friedman, or another member of the board and let's think about how we can help make Stanton flourish together.

Planned Giving at Stanton

Looking for a way to give back to Stanton, not right now, but maybe at some point in the future? Consider planning a long-term gift to the shul. We encourage anyone interested in discussing various ways to plan a gift now that will be given in the future to contact Board members Michael Gordon or Rivky Friedman, or Rabbi Bodner. There are many ways to go about planned giving and we are happy to discuss the various options that might work for you.

Has Your Cholent Got Game? Now Accepting Entries for Stanton's Third Annual Cholent Cook-Off, Feb. 24

Last year's Cholent Cook-off was so delicious, we decided to do it again. Will reigning cholent champions Yankie and Zev Goldman be able to retain their title? Will the shul be able to hold everyone after we've all had our fill of cholent? Come to shul on Friday night, February 24 to find out!
Here's how it works:
- Participants will cook in the shul on Thursday night, February 23
- Stanton will provide a crockpot, basic cholent ingredients and utensils. 
- Contestants will bring whatever else they need (as long as it's kosher-certified) to make a winning cholent and will set their dishes to go in the crockpots overnight. 
Then the entire community is invited to taste and vote on the cholent choices on Friday night, Shabbat, February 23 after services. The winner gets a trophy and bragging rights! 
And, yes, sponsorship opportunities are available! Be an event sponsor for $100, or you can sponsor individual contestants. Stay tuned for details.
To sign up as a contestant / for more info, email elana.reich@gmail.com

Volunteering at Stanton

One of the many strengths of our shul is the variety and multiple talents and abilities of our congregants. It takes a lot to run our shul and our programming, and we can probably use your help. Are you a tech guru, web design aficionado, or social media wiz? A master event planner, fundraiser, or program coordinator? An accountant, lawyer, or investment professional? A trained carpenter, electrician, or contractor? If you have any of these or other skills, professional or amateur, that you'd like to contribute to Stanton, speak to Rabbi Bodner, Rivky Friedman, or another member of the board and let's think about how we can help make Stanton flourish together.

Planned Giving at Stanton

Looking for a way to give back to Stanton, not right now, but maybe at some point in the future? Consider planning a long-term gift to the shul. We encourage anyone interested in discussing various ways to plan a gift now that will be given in the future to contact Board members Michael Gordon or Rivky Friedman, or Rabbi Bodner. There are many ways to go about planned giving and we are happy to discuss the various options that might work for you.

Year-End Giving: FINAL APPEAL
(StantonKIDS Matching Opportunity Extended!)

We know at this time of year you get a lot of emails asking for contributions to worthwhile organizations. This is our final appeal: Please give generously to Stanton in your year-end giving, knowing that your contributions will directly fund the community that serves YOU. Every cent you donate goes toward running the shul!

 

And, now, when you earmark your gift for StantonKIDS, it will be DOUBLED up to $1200, thanks to a generous matching donor!

 

If you are getting this email, it means at some point you have taken part in our prayer services, community events, kids programming, women's tefillah, or weekly classes. Perhaps you have received pastoral services from Rabbi Aviad Bodner, or asked halachic questions about ritual purity from Yoetzet Halacha Ilana Gadish. Maybe you've never been to Stanton but you care about someone who loves the shul. Or you've heard about our warm and welcoming community and our commitment to an inclusive Orthodox Judaism, and you want to be supportive of the work we do. Whatever your affiliation with Stanton, we appreciate your support and need your financial contributions to help us keep going into 2017 and beyond.

 

Membership dues, while important, cover only a small portion of our operating costs, and we make our services and programs free whenever possible. We rely on your generosity to make up the difference and to ensure the financial health of the Stanton Street Shul. We are hoping to raise $18,000 before the end of the year to make sure we cover our operating budget.  Please show your support for our warm and welcoming community by giving generously to our year-end campaign.

 

Click here to make a donation now! Or send a check to Stanton Street Shul, P.O. Box 1008, New York, NY 10002, and note "Year-End campaign" on the check.

 

Thank you for your generosity and for all you do, collectively and individually, to make Stanton the special place that it is.

Your Mission, Should You Choose to Accept It...

A few months ago, many of our members filled out a survey asking what they feel are the most important values of our Shul. This was valuable input as we prepare to write a Mission Statement for our congregation. Now we'd like to convene a small group of members to meet in person and provide more in-depth feedback about the mission of the Stanton Street Shul. If you are interested in participating in this group, please email Laura Weisblatt at laurarweisblatt@gmail.com.

Winter Davening Times: Kabbalat Shabbat at 5:20pm (and Learning Before That), Shabbat Afternoon Mincha at 12:30pm

Now that we've changed the clocks, sundown is coming much earlier. But who wants to eat dinner at 5:00pm? For those who prefer to daven on the later side, we're holding Kabbalat Shabbat and Maariv at 5:20pm every Friday night through the Winter months. And if you're looking for something to do between candle lighting and services, how about joining Rabbi Bodner to learn gemara? Class will meet every Friday starting about 10 minutes after candle lighting.

 

On Shabbat morning, stay for kiddush at noon, followed by mincha at 12:30pm.

Stanton's modest decor and laid-back atmosphere may belie the fact that it takes a tremendous amount of money to keep our doors open; our lights on; our heat working; our kiddushes flowing with kugel and schnapps; our prayer services running smoothly; and our kids programming, women's tefilah meetings, and rabbi's classes going. (All of this is in addition to keeping our building standing, a separate issue for which we raised funds at our recent benefit.)

 

As our numbers and program offerings grow, so does our annual budget, but we are committed to keeping our membership dues low and making our services and programs free whenever possible. All of which means we rely on your generosity to make up the difference and to ensure the financial health of our shul. We are hoping to raise $18,000 before the end of the year to make sure we cover our operating operating expenses. Please show your support for our warm and welcoming community by giving generously to our year-end campaign.

 

Click here to make a donation now! Or send a check to Stanton Street Shul, P.O. Box 1008, New York, NY 10002, and note "Year-End campaign" on the check.

 

Please note that year-end contributions earmarked for StantonKIDS will be MATCHED through the end of the year, thanks to a generous donor.

 

Thank you for your generosity and for all you do, collectively and individually, to make Stanton the special place that it is.

Historical Walking Tour of the Lower East Side with Dr. Elissa Sampson (Yiddish NY Event)

Four out of Five American Jews can trace their origins to the Lower East Side. Join us for a talk followed by a walking tour led by acclaimed scholar Elissa Sampson, part of the upcoming Yiddish New York Festival. You'll learn about the neighborhood's historic synagogues, old tenements, landsmanshaftn, and visit secret community gardens that tell a tale of the LES's evolution. We'll meet at the historic Stanton Street Shul (180 Stanton Street between Clinton St. and Attorney St., just South of E. Houston St. on the Lower East Side). Bring your walking shoes! The talk will run from 1-1:30PM, with the walking tour from 1:30-2:30PM (if it rains, we'll spend more time inside).

CHANUKAH AT STANTON:
Morning Minyan on Sunday, December 25, 9am

Celebrate Chanukah at Stanton! Join us for morning minyan on the first day of the holiday, Sunday, December 25, at 9:00am, for Shacharit services, with Hallel and Torah reading, and followed by bagels. Everyone is welcome to stay after services for a light breakfast and a sort learning session with Rabbi Bodner about the subject of Chanukah in the Mishna.

Dreidel Tournament on Wednesday, Dec. 28, 7pm

Oh, dreidel, dreidel, dreidel. Bring your best spins and a bit of gelt and enter our dreidel tournament on the 5th night of Chanukah, Wednesday, December 28, beginning at 7pm at the shul.

Dreidel-playing not your thing? There will also be menorah lighting, beverages, and fried foods to get you in the Chanukah spirit.

Dreidel spinners, suganiyot noshers, and hangers-on of all ages are welcome!

Your Mission, Should You Choose to Accept It...

A few months ago, many of our members filled out a survey asking what they feel are the most important values of our Shul. This was valuable input as we prepare to write a Mission Statement for our congregation. Now we'd like to convene a small group of members to meet in person and provide more in-depth feedback about the mission of the Stanton Street Shul. If you are interested in participating in this group, please email Laura Weisblatt at laurarweisblatt@gmail.com.

Winter Davening Times: Kabbalat Shabbat at 5:20pm (and Learning Before That), Shabbat Afternoon Mincha at 12:30pm

Now that we've changed the clocks, sundown is coming much earlier. But who wants to eat dinner at 5:00pm? For those who prefer to daven on the later side, we're holding Kabbalat Shabbat and Maariv at 5:20pm every Friday night through the Winter months. And if you're looking for something to do between candle lighting and services, how about joining Rabbi Bodner to learn gemara? Class will meet every Friday starting about 10 minutes after candle lighting.

 

On Shabbat morning, stay for kiddush at noon, followed by mincha at 12:30pm.

Volunteering at Stanton

One of the many strengths of our shul is the variety and multiple talents and abilities of our congregants. It takes a lot to run our shul and our programming, and we can probably use your help. Are you a tech guru, web design aficionado, or social media wiz? A master event planner, fundraiser, or program coordinator? An accountant, lawyer, or investment professional? A trained carpenter, electrician, or contractor? If you have any of these or other skills, professional or amateur, that you'd like to contribute to Stanton, speak to Rabbi Bodner, Rivky Friedman, or another member of the board and let's think about how we can help make Stanton flourish together.

Planned Giving at Stanton

Looking for a way to give back to Stanton, not right now, but maybe at some point in the future? Consider planning a long-term gift to the shul. We encourage anyone interested in discussing various ways to plan a gift now that will be given in the future to contact Board members Michael Gordon or Rivky Friedman, or Rabbi Bodner. There are many ways to go about planned giving and we are happy to discuss the various options that might work for you.

Rabbi Scheer will speak after kiddush, at around 12:00pm, before mincha, which will begin at around 12:40pm. He will present vignettes of different inmates to offer a better glimpse into what Joseph could have been feeling as he sat in jail.

Year-End Giving and StantonKIDS #GivingTuesday Campaign Results

December has arrived, and with it your last chance to make your charitable contributions for 2016. Please remember Stanton in your year-end giving, keeping in mind that we rely on your generosity at this time of year to meet our annual budget and to ensure we can continue to provide free and welcoming services, classes, community events, kids programming and more. Click here to make a donation now!

 

Speaking of kids programming, thank you to all who donated to our #GivingTuesday campaign for StantonKIDS! We raised almost $1700 X 2, thanks to our very generous matching donor!

Since we did not quite meet our $3,000 goal, the donor has extended the offer and will continue to match donations designated for StantonKIDS until the end of the year.  Please keep this in mind as you consider your year-end giving!

(StantonKIDS program sponsorships are available at different levels, beginning at $180. For more information, email kids@stantonstshul.com.)

SAVE THE DATE: Chinese Food Shabbat Community Dinner with Yiddish NY, December 23

There are many ways to go about planned giving and we are happy to discuss the various options that might work for you.

#GivingTuesday: Gifts to StantonKIDS MATCHED!

 #GivingTuesday is coming up on November 29, and this year, thanks to a generous donor, we are holding a special matching gift campaign to say thanks for our remarkable StantonKIDS programming. 

Although we are a small shul with limited resources, we are proud to provide a professionally run children's program. In addition to making the Shabbos experience truly memorable and meaningful for the children and families who attend, StantonKIDS has attracted new families, strengthened the bond among shul parents, and brought smiles to all our faces as we see the kids joyfully parading into shul to lead us in Adon Olam.
A generous donor has offered to match donations made between now and November 29 toward the StantonKIDS program, up to $3,000. Please make a generous contribution to enable more great programming from StantonKIDS. Consider sponsoring a Shabbat morning program, or make a general contribution of any amount you are able toward our matching gift campaign.

Click here and choose "StantonKIDS" from the dropdown menu between now and Tuesday, November 29, to take part in our #GivingTuesday matching gift campaign!

(StantonKIDS program sponsorships are available at different levels, beginning at $180. For more information, email kids@stantonstshul.com.)

SAVE THE DATE: Guest Speaker on December 17

Join us for a special guest speaker on Shabbat of December 17!

Coinciding with Parashat Vayishlach, when Joseph is imprisoned in Egypt, Rabbi Andrew Scheer will speak on his experience working as a Jewish Chaplain for New York City's Department of Corrections. He will provide a broad overview of the conditions on Rikers Island as well as the borough facilities in Manhattan, Brooklyn and the Bronx.

Rabbi Scheer will speak after kiddush, before mincha, and will present vignettes of different inmates to offer a better glimpse into what Joseph could have been feeling as he sat in jail.

Benefit Dinner a Resounding Success!

Our Evening to Benefit the Historic Stanton Street Shul was a fantastic success. We had over 170 people in attendance at the amazing Angel Orensanz Center, and raised a significant sum for the Stanton Street Shul Building Fund (final net tally still pending as additional donations come in).

 

The evening featured fantastic klezmer music by world-renowned musician Alicia Svigals; a program honoring Tikkun Olam Award recipients April Stewart Klausner and Paul Klausner and Nachshon Young Leadership Award recipients Wendy Chin and David Tuchman; Lower East Side themed refreshments, including old-time sodas and pareve egg creams from The Seltzer Guys and a buffet inspired by classic L.E.S. restaurants like Schmulka Bernstein's and Ratner's; and an after-party with a champagne toast, tour of the Shul, and more music.

 

It was an incredible event, and we thank everyone who attended and contributed to the Building Fund. Thank you also to our honorees for working so hard to ensure the benefit was a success and to everyone who volunteered their time and talents to bring it all together: our benefit co-chairs, Sonia Gardner and Julia Wolfe; our benefit committee, Billy Bergman, Dory Bergman, Aliza Deutsch, Rivky Friedman, Risa Gerstein, Michael Gordon, Judy Josephs, Jeff Katz, Malka Percal, Elana Reich, Mayer Sinensky, and Sam Weisblatt; and a huge thanks to Elissa Sampson for leading the tour, contributing to the slideshow, and helping in many other ways. Thank you also to David Deutsch, Sam Deutsch, David Friedman, Yael Gordon, Eric Reich, and Laura Weisblatt, who helped variously with coat check, clean-up, and general/moral support; and to Rabbi Bodner for all of his help and for speaking so beautifully.

 

We also thank Angel Orensanz and everyone at the Angel Orensanz Center for hosting us so graciously and generously; our incredible caterers, Bruce and Ava Soffer of Chef's Table, who went above and beyond the call of duty; Kaufman Bros. Printing who did such a great job printing our invitations (designed by April Stewart Klausner) and benefit journal (designed by Rivky Friedman); our event photographer Andrew Einhorn; and Ami and Larissa Nahari of The River who provided the wine.

 

All proceeds from the event will benefit the Stanton Street Shul Building Fund to help repair and restore our historic building. (You can still click here to make a contribution.)

 

If you have questions, email benefit@stantonstshul.com.

Volunteering at Stanton

One of the many strengths of our shul is the variety and multiple talents and abilities of our congregants. It takes a lot to run our shul and our programming, and we can probably use your help. Are you a tech guru, web design aficionado, or social media wiz? A master event planner, fundraiser, or program coordinator? An accountant, lawyer, or investment professional? A trained carpenter, electrician, or contractor? If you have any of these or other skills, professional or amateur, that you'd like to contribute to Stanton, speak to Rabbi Bodner, Rivky Friedman, or another member of the board and let's think about how we can help make Stanton flourish together.

Post-High Holidays Reckoning: Have You Fulfilled Your Pledges?

By now you're probably back into your weekly routine after the extended High Holidays season. Perhaps you've banished apples and honey from your repertoire of snacks, silenced the phantom shofar blasts that you kept thinking you heard for a while, and finally resisted the urge to beat your chest every time you cop to wrong-doing.

But if there's one thing that's still nagging at you, something you're supposed to do lurking on the edge of your consciousness and slipping away when you try to grasp it in your memory, could it be that you haven't yet fulfilled your High Holidays pledge to give charity?  If so, it's not too late! Please click here to make your High Holidays contribution. (Choose "High Holidays Donation" from the drop-down menu.)

Feel good about striking one more thing off your to do list, freeing yourself from another unfulfilled vow you'd have to cancel and atone for next Yom Kippur, and supporting the warm and welcoming Stanton Street Shul, which greatly appreciates your generosity.
