Welcome to The Shul of New York



High Holidays at the Angel Orensanz Foundation.
 

Our extraordinary New York synagogue is a vibrant and inclusive community, committed to the spiritual unfolding of all its members. We teach a Judaism of the heart, a spiritual wisdom of the world. 

We welcome all people to our services and extend a special welcome to interfaith families.

Our services are joyful and inspirational, embraced by the wonderfully uplifting music of our Shul Band, led by Adam Feder.

We invite you to pray, learn and sing with us, to feel a deep connection to our tradition, and a sense of genuine spiritual fulfillment.

Our Mission
 

It is the mission of The Shul of New York: 

To create a spiritual space and a community, in which people of all ages come to know and inwardly experience their soul - the deepest dimension of our innermost unseen being that is the source of our humanity and our spirituality.

To open our doors to all persons who wish to enter -- regardless of financial means – and to accept and welcome all individuals of any religious background who choose to become part of our community.

We welcome everyone from A to Z, from Atheists to Zoroastrians,
to our services and events.
 

To create an all-inclusive community of singles, families, seniors; straight and gay individuals and couples; in-married and intermarried; converts, marginal and previously unaffiliated Jews and non-Jews; atheists and believers; erudite and novice;  poor, middle-class, and wealthy.

To support spiritual growth, including a spiritual way of living that can make our lives much more meaningful and beautiful. We emphasize that the deepest meaning of religion is spiritual learning and aspiring to live a spiritual life.

To encourage a spirituality that can honestly help each of us become loving, compassionate human beings who derive their greatest joy from giving and helping and contributing to making our world better for all people. 

To put into practice an interpretation and an expression of Judaism that emphasizes, in a liberal way, the beautiful and rich spiritual teachings of our tradition. 

To embrace music as one of the foremost, tangible expressions of our approach.  All our services are made joyous and uplifting by our own Shul Band led by our Director of Music & Development, Adam Feder.

Those who have chosen to affiliate with our Shul include many who felt something was lacking in their previous religious life and have been hungry for a meaningful spiritual experience. They, along with many others, have found exactly what they were looking for at the Shul of New York, A Synagogue for Spiritual Judaism.
