Upcoming Event! Family Synagogue

You may have some questions about our Friday Night Services, the FAQ below will hopefully answers to those queries.

Q. I come from a Yeshiva background. Is this going to be a Beginners Service where I will feel out of place?

A. Our Friday Night Service is geared to make everyone feel at home whatever your level of Jewish education; whether you come with an intensive background or a more limited one. Let the music move you and the discussion inspire you!

Q. I am not yet affiliated and don't understand a word of Hebrew. How will I know what is going on? Will I be bored?

A. At our services there is one thing we don't allow you to be: BORED. Through spirited davenning (praying) led by Ari Klein, you will be swept up in beautiful melodies based on the music/nusach of the late Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach, traditional melodies. Transliterated sheets will be available to help you sing and pray along without missing a beat, no matter what your level of Hebrew. Hopefully, the spirited praying, singing and insightful commentary by Adena Berkowitz will leave you both spiritually and intellectually infused.

Q. I am new to New York and not affiliated with any synagogue. Will I feel left out of the crowd if I don't know a lot of people?

A. Our aim at our Service is to create a warm sense of community. Whether you come with friends or alone hopefully you will leave our services feeling connected.

Q. I am not Orthodox. As a woman, I just can't stand the thought of sitting behind one of those partitions.

A. Our mechitza- divider--will be aesthetically pleasing, with equal sight lines, seats running parallel and will allow all worshippers, both women and men to feel part of the congregation. We strive to create a warm sense of community and fellowship, recognizing the importance of everyone regardless of gender.

Q. I have small children. Are young children welcome?

A. At our Friday Night Service we run a parallel Tot Shabbat as well as a service for the older children, along with Child Care. You will be able to pray at the main service and not have to worry about taking care of your children.
