#GivingTuesday is December 3, 2019

On December 3rd, the Stanton Street Shul will participate in #GivingTuesday, a global day to celebrate philanthropy and giving back. Join the movement by making a donation to our Shul.

 

This year, we are asking our friends and members to contribute to three critical components that are vital for our thriving Jewish community:

  1. Support of the StantonKIDS program
  2. Installation of a security system
  3. Maintenance of the Downtown Eruv

Visit stantonstshul.com/stantongivingtuesday and help us meet our fundraising goal. Give between now and December 3rd to double your donation's impact! Generous donors Peretz Berk & Erik Leung, Elissa Sampson, and April & Paul Klausner have agreed to match your contributions dollar for dollar up to $3000, when you give before #GivingTuesday. All donations are greatly appreciated. 

There's Always Something New at Stanton

Our 106-year-old facade is getting a facelift. When we power washed the facade we discovered that the stone work was painted decades ago, and the old paint had chipped away. We are now putting a fresh coat on the stone and highlighting the Hebrew incised in the pediment above the 2nd floor stained glass window. 

 

All the window frames will be scraped, primed and painted anew.  The chicken wire protecting the stained glass window will be replaced with shatterproof tempered glass. The two decorative metal ornaments that were damaged over the years are being repaired and painted. 

 

Soon the Stanton Street Shul will have an improved facade, pleasing to the eye and ready to greet another century of Jewish worshipers.

 

Thank you to Jeff Katz, Chair of the Building Committee, Vincenzo Aiosa, and the labor crew. To join the Building Committee, email board@stantonstshul.com. To support this work, donate to the Building Fund.

Get to Know Our New Rabbinic Intern Jason Goldstein: Next Visit on November 29-30

We were delighted to welcome Rabbi Jason Goldstein to the Stanton Street last week and look forward to his monthly visits.

Rabbi Goldstein taught well throughout Shabbat and gave us a great deal to think about.

Our rabbinic intern will return on Shabbat Toldot, November 29-30.

If you can offer hospitality - either a comfortable place to sleep and/or share Shabbat meals with him - please speak to Jeff Katz.  

We thank Margie Segal for making her apartment available last Shabbat.

New Security System Being Installed

Due to the insecure environment we live in and the rise in anti-Semitic incidents, it is in our best interest to secure the safety of our members, friends and guests when they attend Shul.

 

We are a modest Shul without the means to station an armed guard every time we have a religious or social function. But in response to the requests of many of our members, and with your help, we are currently installing an effective and user-friendly security system. The anticipated total cost is $10,000.00. We hope the system will be up and running by next week.

 

The code for the front door lock will be given to all our members for easy Shabbat access. Please contribute generously to this necessary security initiative.

Please Excuse Our Appearance

The Stanton Street Shul facade is in the middle of being renovated.

,

When we power washed the facade we discovered that the stone work was painted decades ago, and the old paint had chipped away. We are now putting a fresh coat on the stone and highlighting the Hebrew incised in the pediment above the 2nd floor stained glass window. 

 

Next week all the window frames will be scraped, primed and painted anew.  The chicken wire protecting the stained glass window will be replaced with shatterproof tempered glass. 

The two decorative metal ornaments that were damaged over the years are being repaired and painted. 

 

Soon we will have an improved facade, pleasing to the eye and ready to greet another century of Jewish worshipers.

Please Give Generously in 5780

Our High Holiday services this year were superb. With melodious davening, inspiring speeches and an overflow crowd, we reached a new high in providing free holiday services to all who entered our doors.

 

The costs of running the Shul and maintaining free services is high. Please help us continue to provide an open and welcoming traditional Shul by generously donating to our High Holiday Appeal. If you have not already made a contribution, now is the time to do so. 

 

Monies collected in our High Holiday Appeal will be used to make improvements to our Stanton Street facade. Considering the security precautions that synagogues need to take in the current environment, we have a proposal to install cameras, monitors and taping equipment to make our Shul more secure.

 

Donations may be made at our website www.stantonstshul.comThank you in advance for your generosity. 

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.

Friday Night Kiddush: Nov. 22, 29, Dec. 6

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

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.

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.

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.

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
