Yahrtzeit Kiddush for Victims of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, Shabbat Morning

The Stanton Street Shul invites the public to remember with us all those who perished in the 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire. Please join us to honor their memory with a traditional Lower East Side Yahrtzeit kiddush sponsored by Dr. Elissa Sampson and Prof. Jonathan Boyarin. Most of those who perished were young women and girls who lived in the Lower East Side and Little Italy in close proximity to our historic Lower East Side immigrant Shul built in 1913. Their ongoing struggle to earn a living as poor immigrants reminds us of the necessity of defending immigrant rights, and the rights of poor people today. May their memory be a blessing for all of us.

We will be chalking in memory of the victims on Sunday morning, click here for more details.

Sell Your Chametz!

Before Pesach it is a requirement to eliminate all chametz (leavening) from our possession. However, in those circumstances where elimination is not an option, Jewish law does allow for chametz -- especially and preferably only in non-bread-like form (e.g. liquors, mixtures, etc.) -- to be sold to a gentile.

Arrangements for such sale may be made through Rabbi Aviad Bodner. To do so, download the form by clicking here, fill it out, and return it to Rabbi Bodner NO LATER than Tuesday, March 27. You can email your form directly to Rabbi Bodner at rabbi@stantonstshul.com.

Please note that Rabbi Bodner will be selling Chametz only for those who are spending Pesach in the New York time zone. Rabbi Bodner does not accept personal monetary gifts for this service. He does however, welcome contributions to the Synagogue which will be used to fund classes, events, and programs.

Communal Seder with Rabbi Aviad Bodner - Saturday Night, March 31 - SOLD OUT

Our Shul will be hosting a meaningful and uplifting Passover seder in the Lower East side with the Stanton Street Shul community, where we will experience the exodus together and regard ourselves "as if we had come out of Egypt." The seder is sold out. To be placed on a waiting list email: office@stantonstshul.com.

 

Thank you to our seder sponsors: NJOP, Steve Kay, Anonymous, Alvin Goldstein, Rabbi Robert Jacobs, Steve Reich and Beryl Korot, Paul and Phyllis Ruffer, Jeff Katz and Margie Segal.

Announcements & Upcoming Events

Community News and Purim Thank Yous 

We had an amazing Purim at Stanton this year, thanks to so many of you who coordinated events and food, layned megillah, donated charity, shook groggers, wore crazy costumes, sent mishloach manot, did comedy, and added a festive air to the whole weekend.

 

We not only had great attendance and energy at our megillah readings on Purim night and day, our Open-Mic Comedy Purim Party on Wednesday night, and a very successful Mishloach Manot project which raised money for the shul and built community among members but we also were able to donate nearly $3,000 for matanot la'evyonim (gifts for the poor) to individuals in our community, as well as to the NYU Student drive for the homeless and needy on the Lower East Side (thank you Rabbi Joe Wolfson), Masbia kosher soup kitchens, the needy in the Lower East Side through Rabbi Zvi Romm of the Bialystoker Synagogue and more. Thank you to all who donated! Thank you to Rabbi Bodner for coordinating these charitable efforts and so much of the Purim experience at Stanton.

 

We started off the week on Sunday with an amazing StantonKIDS Purim party with Morah Aliza and Morah Iana. Thank you Paul and April Klausner for sponsoring.

 

Thank you to David Waxman for layning megillah for our traditional readings Purim night and morning.

 

Thank you to all of the layners for the Women's Megillah reading on Purim night: Ray Katz, Aliza Deutsch, Zipporah Nagel, Adina Noble and Rivky Friedman.

 

Thank you to Dana Friedman for hosting and putting together our open mic comedy night, to David Deutsch and Leslie Levinson for their performances, and to our special guests Dan Abraham, Chani Lisbon, and Chaim Samuels.

 

Thank you to Risa Gerstein, Jeff Katz, Malka Percal, Sam and Laura Weisblatt for packing up our communal mishloach manot packages (and to the StantonKIDS Sunday morning program participants for decorating the boxes). Thank you Mayer Sinensky with all your help behind the scenes. If you didn't pick up your box, please do so by Tuesday this week!

 

Thank you to Peretz Berk and Erik Leung for sponsoring the Purim Seudah and to Risa Gerstein for setting up.

 

Finally, thank you to all of you who showed up and helped to make Purim so much fun. Next up: Pesach!
