Friday Night Services Guide Sponsorships

We are thrilled with the number of new members and guests who have been joining us for services, classes, special lectures, and events over the past few years. Surely one of the highlights of our service is our Friday night Kabbalat Shabbat, capped by Rabbi Soloveichik’s Friday Night Lights talks. So many have told us how beautiful and inspiring these services are. But some have also told us that they wish they had a deeper understanding of our service, liturgy, music, and customs. Our clergy, leadership, and veteran members are eager for you to learn and settle in as well.

 

In follow up to our recently released (and due to popular demand, soon to be republished), Guide for the Perplexed: A Newcomer's Primer to Congregation Shearith Israel, we are about to release: Friday Night Services: A Newcomer’s Guide to Congregation Shearith Israel’s Unique Customs.

We are offering the sponsorship opportunties to support this endeavor at levels of:

$1,000

$360

$250 

$180

and would be delighted to include a robust list in this beautiful publication.
