Lounge on the Lawn

Shearith Israel members are invited to come and bring friends to relax, schmooze, or work on our beautiful Paved Paradise, our outdoor space adjacent to the synagogue. Follow our emails for this week's hours.

Bring a book, bring a snack, bring a laptop or newspaper -- we'll bring the tables, chairs, water, and wi-fi!

No advance registration required (except for services); just sign in when you get here.

There will be 2 sections: Mask Optional for those who are fully vaccinated, and Mask Required for those who are unvaccinated.


Reminder: By attending our services or participating in our activities, you and your family are affirming all the procedures, requirements, and undertakings included on our registration forms and are committed to following the CDC and NYS recommended practices in EVERY aspect of your life. Specifically, if you sit in the Mask Optional section, you represent and warrant that you are fully vaccinated (final dose + 14 days). We each rely on one another to keep our community healthy and safe.
