              Lower East Side Announcements

Construction Has Begun (and People Are Noticing)!

Our Urgent Repairs Project is underway! When you come to shul this Shabbat, you may notice some temporary structures at the front of the shul sanctuary, near the aron. Otherwise, our use of the shul -- both the main sanctuary and the beit midrash -- should be unobstructed. The work will continue through the summer.

 

The shul has received press coverage about the construction, including in the Lo-Down and The New York Jewish Week

 

Thank you to the NY Landmarks Conservancy and to all who contributed to make these repairs possible. Thank you also to the Urgent Repairs Committee members -- Elissa Sampson, Raffi Abelson, Jessica Spector, Jeff Katz and Rivky Friedman -- for their efforts in moving this project forward.

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.

Construction Has Begun!

Our Urgent Repairs Project is underway! When you come to shul this Shabbat, you may notice some temporary structures at the front of the shul sanctuary, near the bima. Otherwise, our use of the shul -- both the main sanctuary and the beit midrash -- should be unobstructed. The work will continue through the summer.

 

A complete report from our in-person briefing was sent out last week via email to Shul members.

 

Thank you to the NY Landmarks Conservancy and to all who contributed to make these repairs possible. Thank you also to the Urgent Repairs Committee members -- Elissa Sampson, Raffi Abelson, Jessica Spector, Jeff Katz and Rivky Friedman -- for their efforts in moving this project forward.

Urgent Repairs Construction Beginning on July 5

After several years of talking about it, several fundraising campaigns, and a lot of generosity on the part of our members, friends, and the NY Landmarks Conservancy, we are finally going to be doing the most urgent repairs to our building. Thank you to all who donated to make this possible!

 

Construction is scheduled to begin on Wednesday, July 5, and will continue for about 10-12 weeks. We expect to maintain regular shul operations and Shabbat services throughout.

 

A meeting was held this past Tuesday to share information about the project, including the timeline, and what to expect during and after the construction is complete. The Urgent Repairs Committee is preparing a report from that meeting, which will be sent by email to Shul members in the next few days.

 

Thank you to Elissa Sampson, Raffi Abelson, Jessica Spector, Jeff Katz and Rivky Friedman for their efforts in moving this project forward.

Tour of Jewish Harlem, Sunday, June 25

Register now for a walking tour of Jewish Harlem on Sunday morning, June 25, at 11:00am.

 

In 1900, 177,000 Jews lived in Harlem. There are few physical vestiges remaining of that vibrant period of Jewish American settlement, but careful observation, a willing imagination and accompanying narrative will evoke this past community.

Former synagogues, such as Ohab Zedek - pulpit of Cantor Yossele Rosenblatt - and the Commandment Keepers, a black congregation, will be visited as well as residences of famous Jewish personalities. Additionally, tour educator Barry Feldman will discuss general Harlem history, architecture and recent developments in the area.

 

This is a moderate walking tour, 1 1/2 to 2 hours. We suggest comfortable shoes and a bottle of water. Suggested donation per person: $15 for members, $20 for non-members. Registration closes on June 20th.  For more information and registration, please click here.

Find out what this will entail, how it will affect shul operations, and all the other gritty details at an informational meeting on Wednesday, June 27, at 7pm at the shul. Members of the Urgent Repairs Committee will be on hand to give an update and to answer your questions. Please join us!

In 1900, 177,000 Jews lived in Harlem. There are few physical vestiges remaining of that vibrant period of Jewish American settlement, but careful observation, a willing imagination and accompanying narrative will evoke this past community.

Former synagogues, such as Ohab Zedek - pulpit of Cantor Yossele Rosenblatt - and the Commandment Keepers, a black congregation, will be visited as well as residences of famous Jewish personalities. Additionally, tour educator Barry Feldman will discuss general Harlem history, architecture and recent developments in the area.

 

This is a moderate walking tour, 1 1/2 to 2 hours. We suggest comfortable shoes and a bottle of water. Suggested donation per person: $15 for members, $20 for non-members. Registration closes on June 20th.  For more information and registration, please click here.

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.

RENEW YOUR SHUL MEMBERSHIP BY JUNE 1
Membership Rates for 2017-18

Membership in the Stanton Street Shul is the best way to support our synagogue and community.

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.

Over The Rainbow: Lag B'Omer For Kids

We’re shooting for Over the Rainbow with a great Lag B'Omer holiday themed family program that also celebrates Mothers Day and Lower East Side History Month. So, come one, come all on Sunday, May 14, 10:00am-12:00pm! 

 

We’ll be going outside to our neighbors the Siempre Verde Community Garden. Our extraordinary art and music teachers will help children decorate pots and place seeds in them to create Mothers Day presents. There will be marshmallow roasting and other fun activities.

 

Lag B’Omer is an outdoors Jewish holiday that joyously marks the halfway point of counting the days between two important festivals: Passover (Pesach), which is associated with the barley harvest, and Shavuot, the wheat harvest. The bow and rainbow are symbols associated with Lag B’Omer and with the promise, or covenant, of a green world.

 

Bad weather? No problem: we'll be indoors at the Shul, and bring nature in with us.

 

We work hard to provide the highest quality StantonKIDS programming for our youngest members. We completely rely on donations to provide this programming, and every bit counts. So please consider giving to StantonKIDS! Click here to donate now.

Honor Thy Parents! Celebrate Parents with a Kiddush at Stanton

Join us for a very special Parents Day Kiddush, Stanton Style, on Saturday, May 13th! But first, we want to know if you ever thanked your parents for everything they did for you when you were small? Be honest, did you thank them:   
- For that time you used permanent marker to color the cat purple?

- Or when you gave your mom's diamond ring to your 6th grade girlfriend?

- Or when your dad talked you into cutting your rat tail coiffure for that interview?

- Or because they STILL do your laundry? 

 

If the answer to any of these questions is no, it means that you should help sponsor Stanton's Parents Day kiddush to honor your parent, grandparent, spouse, or friend, or yourself! If you've ever washed Nutella out of someone's hair (or had it washed out of yours), this kiddush is for you. You deserve it! 
 
We will be giving a yummy edible treat to thank parents and sponsored honorees. So become a sponsor in honor of parents - yours, your kids', friends, whomever for $150. And for those who do double chai, no matter what the cause, here's your golden opportunity to have a $36 shout out. ($36 is the approximate cost for one child to attend our free StantonKIDS Shabbat programming )
