New Members Hanukkah Gathering

At the Home of Rabbi Soloveichik

Wednesday, December 13, 8:00PM

Our community, especially our synagogue leadership, is very eager to get to know each and every new member and to make them feel at home at Shearith Israel. Several times throughout the year, sometimes on Shabbat, sometimes mid-week, we host gatherings, sometimes at the synagogue, sometimes in private homes, where new members can mingle with each other and our leadership. Our Hanukkah gathering at the Soloveichik home has become a wonderful and much anticipated tradition. Guests enjoy an array of traditional and modern takes on latkes and other treats, hear words of torah by our rabbi and socialize in a warm and relaxed atmosphere.  By Invitation.

Twenty First Street Cemetery

In August of 1829, Shearith Israel’s third cemetery was consecrated.  It was located on Twenty First Street just west of Sixth Avenue


Synagogue tradition associates this Hanukkah lamp with the First Mill Street Synagogue of 1730.
