High Holidays Recap, Thank Yous and a Reminder

If you joined us for Rosh Hashana or Yom Kippur you know what a moving and meaningful experience we had -- amazing turnout, uplifting services and a warm and friendly atmosphere.

We also did something new and asked you to make pledges to our High Holidays fundraising campaign. If you made a pledge and have not yet fulfilled it, or even if you didn't make a pledge but want to make a contribution, please go online to to make a donation, or send a check by mail to The Stanton Street Shul, P.O. Box 1008, New York, NY 10002.

The services and programs could not have happened without the help of so many of you. A huge thank you to Rabbi Bodner and to all the greeters, gabbaim, daveners and layners, StantonKIDS coordinators, publicists, kiddush and break-fast sponsors, sign designers, auctioneer, pledge-card makers, postcard artists, appeal givers, shofar blowers, machzor putter-outers and stuffers, kiddush oderers, set-uppers and clean-uppers, chair shleppers, and all who helped in ways large and small. We are a shul that depends not only on the financial generosity of our congregants but also on the generosity of your time, energy and spirit. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

StantonKIDS Sukkah Decorating Party on Sunday, October 16, 10:00a

All kids and their guardians are invited to a Sukkah Decorating Party this Sunday, October 16, at 10:00am. Join us at the Siempre Verde Garden, across the street from shul, where we will do arts and crafts, sing songs and have snacks while we learn about the holiday of Sukkot and beautify Stanton's sukkah!


Come back for our StantonKIDS program on Shabbat morning of Sukkot, October 22, at 10:30am at the shul. Our programs are recommended for children 2 to 6 years of age, but children of all ages are welcome!



The Holidays Continue: Sukkot, Shemini Atzeret and Simchat Torah Festivities at Stanton

After the fasting and repentance of Yom Kippur, the holidays lighten up and get more joyous. Join us for Sukkot, where we'll shake a lulav, have kiddush in the sukkah across the street at the Siempre Verde Garden, and enjoy the holiday together.

Shemini Atzeret Community Dinner on Sunday, October 23

It's not Sukkot, and it's not Simchat Torah. So what is it? An excuse to gather with friends, eat delicious food, and stay warm and toasty indoors after a week of outdoor-dining. Click here to register now for our Shemini Atzeret community dinner on Sunday, October 23rd. Ma'ariv will begin at 5:55pm and dinner will follow immediately after services, around 6:30pm. Registration will close on October 19 at 7:00pm or earlier if space fills up before then.

Simchat Torah: Hakafot (Dancing) and Torah Reading for Both Men and Women!

Simchat Torah is the time we celebrate the end of the past year's cycle of Torah reading and the beginning of the new one. It's one of the most joyous and most fun of all the Jewish holidays, where we dance with the Torah, drink some schnapps, and where traditionally everyone who wants to gets called up to the Torah.

Take part in the merriment at our Maariv services on Monday, October 24, where we'll have hakafot (dancing with the Torah) for both men and women (in separate circles), and come again on the morning of Tuesday, October 25, for more hakafot and Torah reading. We have a traditional Torah reading upstairs and a women's only Torah reading downstairs so ALL who want to get an aliyah can do so. Please join us!

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.
