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.
