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.

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. 


Rabbi Jason Goldstein is a fourth year student at Yeshivat Chovevei Torah. He has interned at Congregation Shaar Hashomayim in Montreal and has served as a scholar in residence at various congregations throughout the country. He was a Leffell AIPAC Fellow and a Shalom Hartman Institute of North America Rabbinic Student Fellow. A graduate of Brandeis University, Rabbi Goldstein has previously learned at the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies and Yeshivat Hamivtar. He lives on the Upper West Side, and enjoys hosting Shabbat meals and discovering new recipes.


Rabbi Goldstein will be with us once every month beginning on November 8-9, Parashat Lech Lecha. He will join us for community Shabbat dinners, deliver drashot, and will be teaching classes at various times throughout the year.


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.


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. 

Sponsor a Kiddush

Sponsoring a kiddush is a great way to celebrate milestones, commemorate a yahrzeit, or show your appreciation for someone in your life. It's about coming together with your community. And with kugel. 


We have sponsorships available through the summer. Please email for more information.

Upcoming Sponsorship Opportunities:

Friday Night Kiddush: Oct. 18, 25, Nov. 1

Shabbat Kiddush: Oct. 19, 26, Nov. 2
