Meals in the Succah 5778

For Shearith Israel members and their guests who wish to eat self-catered meals in the Elias Room succah, we offer timed seatings on yom tob following kiddush and on hol hamoed. Registration is required for all meals and we charge $12 per person per meal to help defray costs. You bring the food (strictly kosher, of course) and we supply disposables and basic beverages. Space is highly limited especially as our Courtyard Succah is unavailable due to our construction. 

We will accommodate members and immediate family on a first-come-first-serve basis. Non-member guests will be accommodated closer to the date subject to availability. To register, please fill out this form.  You will be contacted by our Office Manager, Sarah Gross to confirm and collect payment.

Omer Board

Shearith Israel’s “Omer Board” dates back to the Mill Street Synagogue of 1730, and may indeed go back to the early years of the Congregation’s history.
