The Shul Celebrates our Chai Year!

The Shul of New York Celebrates our

Chai Year in 2018


Believe it or not, 2018 will mark 18 years of life for The Shul of New York!



The letters of Chai add up to 18 so, since The Shul of New York has officially been the synagogue for spiritual Judaism since 2000 (actually a bit before that, but why quibble), 2018 is The Shul’s Chai Year, a year to celebrate that our Shul is overflowing with chai – life.


And we can think of no way to better celebrate this Shul milestone than doing what we do best:  continuing to provide you, our Shul Family, with a spiritual home away from home.


Rabbi Eva will continue to be here for you in private discussions and at our twice monthly Shabbat Services featuring the marvelous music of Adam Feder and The Shul Band.


The Shul will continue to provide the opportunity to celebrate your and your family’s life-cycle occasions wrapped in the warm embrace of our welcoming congregation.


The Shul will continue to celebrate Jewish holidays in the inclusive and joyous way we approach our lives, culminating in The Shul of New York’s High Holiday Celebration at the beautiful and historic Angel Orensanz Foundation. When you experience our High Holidays with Rabbi Eva Sax-Bolder, Rabbi Emeritus Burt Siegel, and Adam Feder and The Shul Band you know why we work so hard to make sure the Shul will always be here for you.


Join us as The Shul of New York welcomes everyone to a new year of programs and events.


Join us on February 2nd for Shabbat services and a Tu B’Shevat Seder, and on April 6th for an 8th Night Passover Seder.


Join us on February 2nd as we start our newest Families @ Shul program with a First Friday pre-Shabbat Story Time for Shul kids and families. A story, activity and songs for the kids, and a glass of wine for the parents!


Join us as we create new ways for you to explore and experience the spirituality in your everyday lives. In our Chai Year, Rabbi Eva has created an exciting new program to do just that called Conversations in Spirituality.


Conversations in Spirituality is a monthly program of salon gatherings to explore spirituality through the lens of practical wisdom drawn from Jewish tradition, sources and practices. You will learn a little, discuss a lot, and meet new people as you explore new spiritual practices to integrate into your daily life.


Join us on Sunday February 4th for the first of two Interfaith Relationships discussions which will offer an opportunity for couples and individuals to identify and discuss issues that come up in interfaith relationships and to share ideas about honoring different traditions with respect.


And we cannot ring in this very special Chai Year for The Shul of New York without doing one more thing: Thanking you. (Tell the truth; you thought we were going to ask for money.)


We cannot express in mere words how much we appreciate you,
our Shul congregation, our Shul family.


Without your support and involvement, The Shul of New York would not be the very special place it is, and indeed, it would not exist.


Let’s celebrate our Chai Year together!
