About the Shul

The Shul of New York - A Synagogue for Spiritual Judaism, is a unique congregation with a liberal Reform ideology founded on the idea of inclusiveness and the full participation of all. Our congregants come from all walks of life, all areas of New York City and beyond.  We are young and old, married and single, gay and straight, wealthy and of modest means, Jewish and non-Jewish.

Our non-traditional approach is embodied in everything
we do.

For example:

We do not have a building, but we meet in historic
New York City locations.

We do not charge fixed dues, but ask that people who wish to affiliate make a donation that they can feel good about.

We believe in the value of volunteerism, and conduct much Shul business through voluntary work by members of our Board of Directors, Auxiliary Committee and congregants.

We are welcoming to children who have begun their religious studies late and who wish to have a meaningful Bar or Bat Mitzvah.

We offer educational programs for adults, including inspiring Adult Bar/Bat Mitzvah study.

We have great Family Programs that incorporate fun, spirituality and an opportunity for community.

We embrace diversity of all kinds and welcome interfaith couples and families.

Music is one of the defining aspects
of The Shul of New York

The Shul Band is an extraordinarily talented group of musicians with a diversity of sound and texture that stems from the variety of musical styles and cultural backgrounds of the musicians themselves. 

Some have classical training, some are Jazz musicians and others add Mariachi, Bluegrass, Folk, Rock and Soul influences. Their original music and new interpretations of classic songs enhance our worship and our celebrations.

We invite you to browse this website to learn about The Shul of New York’s outlook and essential teachings, and to get to know us by attending a service or a program.
