At Shacharit services on Simchat Torah morning, we will hold our annual Women's Torah Reading where all women who want to get an aliyah will be called up to the Torah.  

 

See the for the complete schedule for Simchat Torah, and save the date for our next regular Women's Tefillah on Shabbat morning, November 23.

Amish Group Visits Stanton and Issues an Invitation

On the first day of Chol haMoed Sukkot, Lower East Side Conservancy tour guide Svetlana Kershtein brought four Amish gentlemen from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, to the Stanton Street Shul. 

 

They had visited a number of LES shuls that afternoon, but spent a good deal of time with Jeff Katz understanding the uniqueness of our Shul and the practices of orthodox Judaism. The three brothers and their nephew were fascinated to learn about traditional Shabbat practices; the making and reading of Torah scrolls; the separation of the sexes during prayer; and the study of Biblical texts. 

 

They strongly related to many of these practices, although their religious observance is obviously different. When Yiddish was spoken, the four gentlemen were able to understand most of the words as they were somewhat fluent in Pennsylvanian German.

 

They invited the Shul to visit and offered to arrange an authentic Amish tour of their community.

Note of Appreciation

It is always heartwarming to hear how important the Stanton Street Shul is in the lives of our members and friends. Here is letter of thanks and praise we received.

 

Dear Stanton Street:

 
We were so happy and feel very blessed that we were able to share both Yom Kippur and our daughter's bat mitvzah with Stanton Street Shul.
 
You and your community have exemplified what it means to open your arms and your hearts to us and to our extended family and guests.
 
I went through two conversions about 13 years ago—first a conservative and then an Orthodox and I had some not great experiences with some of the Rabbis and community. My husband would always say, “do not confuse Jews with Judaism.” Stanton though has allowed all of us to see the beauty of Judaism through the davening and through the people. So I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
 

Wishing you a year of blessing and health and we will look forward to seeing all of you next year.

 
Best,
Family Fahn

Welcoming Our New Rabbinic Intern: Rabbi Jason Goldstein

We are delighted to announce that, in cooperation with Yeshivat Chovevei Torah, the Stanton Street Shul will soon welcome a rabbinic intern for the 2019-2020 year.

He has interned at Congregation Shaar Hashomayim in Montreal and has served as a scholar in residence at various congregations throughout the country.

A graduate of Brandeis University, Rabbi Goldstein has previously learned at the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies and Yeshivat Hamivtar.

We all look forward to extending a warm Stanton welcome to our rabbinic intern.

Help Stanton Go Green

As a community we are beginning to be more mindful of ecological concerns. For a long time we have been attentive to recycling our waste materials.  Now we are beginning the battle of removing plastic utensils from our kitchen and kiddushim.

High Holidays Recap and Your Generosity

We are delighted to report that the Stanton Street Shul experienced the Ten Days of Repentance this year by welcoming record numbers of worshippers to all its services. Our sanctuary was full and our gallery accommodated the overflow crowds.

 

Davening on the High Holidays was led by our exceptional team of service leaders. Inspirational talks by our lay leadership punctuated our services, and periodic explanations of the service guided us to a more meaningful holiday experience. Thank you to all who helped make Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur services run so smoothly and feel so special.

 

Services at the Stanton Street Shul are well run, heartfelt and heimish, and accessible to people from all backgrounds. We are a welcoming Shul that does not charge for High Holiday attendance and makes sure all who enter our doors feel that they are part of the Stanton Family.

 

Though our services are free to worshippers, they are costly to run, and we rely on your generosity to make sure we maintain our all-access services, educational classes, kids programming, arts and musical events. Please consider making a generous High Holidays donation to support our operations, or contribute to our Building Fund to help us complete the comprehensive renovation of our 107 year old Shul. Click here to make a donation or send a check made out to the Stanton Street Shul by mail to 180 Stanton St., New York, NY 10002.

 

Another great way to show your support, and to be a part of this unique community, is to become a new Shul member. And if your membership has lapsed, now is the time to renew your commitment.

 

We wish you a Gmar Chatima Tova. May you be sealed for a year of health, happiness and meaningful Shul attendance.

Tenement Chic North: Ornamentation and Architectural Tour of the East Village

Our friend Barry Feldman will be giving an East Village walking tour on Sunday, September 15, at 10:45am.

 

Garish grotesques, mythical beasts, beautiful botanicals, ornate cornices, columns & pilasters -- these are but a few examples of architectural ornamentation that adorn otherwise drab tenements throughout the Lower East Side.

 

Who were the anonymous artisans that created these treasures?

What developments in building technology allowed for these applications? What motivated developers and landlords to increase their costs to accommodate them?

 

Join urban historian Barry Feldman, our housing specialist, for further exploration of tenement history and ornamental architecture north of Houston.

 

There will be opportunity to analyze, compare, admire and discuss a wide sampling of building facades as you walk the streets of the East Village. Additionally, the development of the tenement and the architectural styles of nineteenth and twentieth century townhouses will be discussed

Tenement Chic North: Ornamentation and Architectural Tour of the East Village

Our friend Barry Feldman will be giving an East Village walking tour on Sunday, September 15, at 10:45am.

 

Garish grotesques, mythical beasts, beautiful botanicals, ornate cornices, columns & pilasters -- these are but a few examples of architectural ornamentation that adorn otherwise drab tenements throughout the Lower East Side.

 

Who were the anonymous artisans that created these treasures?

What developments in building technology allowed for these applications?

What motivated developers and landlords to increase their costs to accommodate them?

 

Join urban historian Barry Feldman, our housing specialist, for further exploration of tenement history and ornamental architecture north of Houston.

 

There will be opportunity to analyze, compare, admire and discuss a wide sampling of building facades as you walk the streets of the East Village. Additionally, the development of the tenement and the architectural styles of nineteenth and twentieth century townhouses will be discussed

Help Stanton Go Green

As a community we are beginning to be more mindful of ecological concerns. For a long time we have been attentive to recycling our waste materials.  Now we are beginning the battle of removing plastic utensils from our kitchen and kiddushim.

 

A set of stainless steel silverware has been purchased, toyveled, [ritually prepared], and is ready for use.  In the coming weeks we will replace plastic cups with dish washable alternatives.  Please see Jeff Katz or Jill Slater to discuss these improvements.

Fundraiser for Mazalot Restoration: LES Jewish Conservancy and Stanton

Last May, as part of LES History Month, the Lower East Side Jewish Conservancy launched a Facebook fundraiser and raised one thousand dollars towards the restoration of the Stanton Street Shul's Mazalot.

 

We are thankful to David Wachs, Lori Weissman, and Karen Blatt for their efforts in initiating this successful fundraiser. The Shul is appreciative of its many friends who donated so generously to help in the restoration. It is very encouraging that those beyond our congregation are so invested in the renewal and restoration of our 106 year-old building and community.
 
The following narrative appeared in the Facebook announcement by the Lower East Side Jewish Conservancy and generated such an enthusiastic response.
 

"The pictorial display of Mazalot, Jewish East European folk art renderings of signs of the zodiac, on the walls and ceilings of synagogues, were once prevalent throughout Lower East Side Shuls. At the Stanton Street Shul, Bnai Jacob Anschei Brzezan, a congregation with roots in Brzezan, Galicia, the Mazalot paintings have deteriorated over the years and are in need of urgent conservation.

 

The Stanton Street Shul, established in 1913, is an active Shul that has undergone a major renovation in the past two years. Several of the twelve Mazalot have been restored by our resident artists and dedicated in the name of their sponsors. These rare and precious zodiac paintings represent an almost two thousand year old synagogue tradition that has endured since the Roman era.

The deterioration and possible disappearance of the Stanton Street Mazalot would be like having a page torn out of a history book of the immigrant story. It’s one thing to hear about our families who emigrated from Eastern Europe; it’s quite another to see how they surrounded their shul walls with religious art.

 

The Shul is blessed with resident artists who will restore the remaining Mazalot this summer. Each original Mazal has been photographed and will be meticulously conserved. Evidence of their professional restorations is on view. Please come by for "All are welcome at the Stanton Street Shul, and all will feel welcome."

 

Several Mazalot remain to be sponsored and restored. If you have roots on the Lower East or wish to commemorate a relative or friend, the sponsorship of a Mazal would be a fitting gesture. Please contact Jeff Katz at the Shul."

Update from the Rabbinic Search Committee

After casting a wide net and conducting an exhaustive search, we have not hired a rabbi.  
 
Two candidates met with the congregation on two separate Shabbatot. The turnout for the Friday night dinners, services on Shabbat, and Q&A sessions with the candidates was very impressive.  The enthusiasm displayed by the congregation demonstrated our community’s strong interest in the process; in meeting the candidates, and in hearing what they had to say. In the end the survey responses many of you submitted strongly influenced our decision making. 
  
We hope you agree that the search process had integrity and direction. We believe we left no stone unturned considering that the search began very late in the season.  Rabbinic graduates receive smicha in the late spring and generally find employment for the coming year in the late winter or early spring. Our late start set us at a disadvantage.  
 
The Ritual Committee will be announcing plans for the High Holidays shortly. We are confident that our community will be properly served during this time of transition. As our search continues, we appreciate your patience and input. 

 

We look forward to the eventual positive outcome for our beloved shul.

Several Mazalot remain to be sponsored and restored. If you have roots on the Lower East or wish to commemorate a relative or friend, the sponsorship of a Mazal would be a fitting gesture. Please contact Jeff Katz at the Shul."

Update from the Rabbinic Search Committee

After casting a wide net and conducting an exhaustive search, we have not hired a rabbi.  
 
Two candidates met with the congregation on two separate Shabbatot. The turnout for the Friday night dinners, services on Shabbat, and Q&A sessions with the candidates was very impressive.  The enthusiasm displayed by the congregation demonstrated our community’s strong interest in the process; in meeting the candidates, and in hearing what they had to say. In the end the survey responses many of you submitted strongly influenced our decision making. 
  
We hope you agree that the search process had integrity and direction. We believe we left no stone unturned considering that the search began very late in the season.  Rabbinic graduates receive smicha in the late spring and generally find employment for the coming year in the late winter or early spring. Our late start set us at a disadvantage.  
 
The Ritual Committee will be announcing plans for the High Holidays shortly. We are confident that our community will be properly served during this time of transition. As our search continues, we appreciate your patience and input. 

 

We look forward to the eventual positive outcome for our beloved shul.

During this period, we mourn the destruction of the Beit Hamikdash (Holy Temple). We grapple with the sins of our ancestors, the baseless hatred said to have brought about the Temple's destruction, and our own responsibility to right their wrongs by repairing our relationships with each other. 

 

Join us for a meaningful and moving program, led by Rabbi Bodner, on Saturday night, August 10, beginning with Ma'ariv at 9:20 pm, followed by a reading of the Book of Eichah and communal singing of Kinot (Elegies) downstairs in the beit midrash. All are welcome.

Halachot of Tisha B'Av This Year

This year, Tisha B'Av falls on Shabbat; therefore, the fast day is observed on Sunday (10th of Av), which begins motzei Shabbat  (Saturday evening). Unlike other years, one is permitted and encouraged to have a large seuda shlishit (third Shabbat meal) on Shabbat afternoon before the fast begins (Shulchan Aruch, Orach Chaim 552:10). It can be either meat or dairy. One should daven mincha before the meal. (We will be davening Mincha at 1:35 pm). 

 

One must be careful to conclude all eating and drinking before sunset, which takes place this Saturday at 8:00 pm. Beginning at that time, washing, eating and drinking are prohibited. However, we sit on chairs of regular height and wear normal footwear until nightfall.

After nightfall at 8:46 pm, one should recite the blessing: "Baruch Hamavdil bein Kodesh le-Chol" which allows one to engage in melakhah (work). One then takes off leather shoes and puts on canvas or rubber footwear. There is no regular havdalah on Saturday evening (havdalah over wine is postponed until after the fast.) We do however recite the blessing over the candle ("Borei Meorei Haesh") after Shabbat is over. This blessing is not contingent upon the blessing over the wine; it is an expression of thanks for the creation of fire, which according to a midrash was revealed to humanity on Shabbat's conclusion (SA OC 556). We will say this bracha publicly at shul after maariv.

Maariv at Stanton will begin at 9:20 pm followed by the reading of Megilat Eichah and recitation of the evening kinot, singing slow songs of dveikut - yearning for the presence of God - and songs about Jerusalem. All are encouraged to participate.

Please join us on Sunday morning at 9:00 am for Shacharit and Kinot at shul. We do not put on tefilin or a talit until mincha of Tisha B'Av (SA OC 555:1).

The fast ends at 8:32 pm. At the close of the fast, before eating and drinking, havdalah must be recited over grape juice or wine. Two blessings are recited: "HaGafen" and "HaMavdil"; we do not bless, however, over the spices and the candle. This year, since the fast is observed on the 10th of Av, the restrictions of the nine days are lifted on Sunday night. However, meat and wine are prohibited until Monday morning (SA OC 558:1).
 
"Anyone who mourns for Jerusalem merits to share in her joy" (Babylonian Talmud Taanit 30A).

Mazalot Restored

Three mazalot [Zodiac paintings] and wainscoting below have now been restored by Stanton's internal crew of artists: David Wander, Dory and Billy Bergman. The three mazalot include Chodesh Adar, Nisan and Iyar.

 

Spend some time examining the rich detail, the vibrant colors, and hopefully you will appreciate that eight of the twelve mazalot have been masterfully restored within the last two years. The eight have been generously sponsored by Stanton donors. The remaining four are still available to individuals, families or groups for sponsorship. If you are interested speak with Jeff Katz.
