Join us on Tuesday, July 30th at 7pm for a Shloshim to commemorate the life of Moshe Maurice Wilkominsky z"l – Moshe Sholmo ben Yitzchak.

We are requesting, if you can, to study some Torah in his memory that we can discuss when we’re together. May his memory be for a blessing. For more information, please contact Judy at

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.

Tisha B'Av at Stanton - Saturday Night, August 10

From sundown on August 10 until nightfall of August 11, we will be observing the fast of Tisha B'Av (this year observed on the 10th of Av). 


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 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.
