New Parochet for Our Ark Thanks to Sixth Street Synagogue

We thank the Sixth Street Community Synagogue for gifting us a traditional parochet [ark covering] that will be used throughout the year.


We have placed our High Holiday parochet, made by Nicole Blau, in storage until next year.


The new parochet is now on an easy-to-open pulley system.  With a gentle tug on the string it opens and closes smoothly.


Thank you to Vincenzo Aiosa and Cesar Fernandez for installing the new parochet.

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.

The Pen and the Knife: Stanton Art Exhibit 

Our newest art exhibit is The Pen and The Knife: Jewish Papercuts, featuring seven renowned artists, including several shul members. Check it out next time you are in shul or make an appointment for a private viewing. 


Papercutting has been a common Jewish art form since the Middle Ages, connected with various customs and ceremonies, and associated with holidays and family life.  Our artists practice traditional papercutting as well as more modern interpretations of this longstanding art form. 


Featured artists include Rachel Asarnow, Dory Bergman, David Friedman, Dena Levie, Diane Reich, Deborah Ugoretz, and David Wander

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: Nov. 8, 15, 22

Shabbat Kiddush: Nov. 9, 16, 23
