Yom Yerushalayim

We celebrate Yom Yerushalayim, the anniversary of the re-unification of Jerusalem in 1967, with the recitation of the full Hallel—with a blessing—in our morning services. The Congregation often participates with other synagogues and organizations in sponsoring communal celebrations of Yom Yerushalayim.

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.

Chatham Square Cemetery

The oldest of our extant cemeteries is known as the Chatham Square Cemetery.  It is located in Chinatown at 55 St. James Place.  The land was originally purchased in 1682 by Joseph Bueno de Mesquita.
