Kabbalat Shabbat

Friday nights are the heart of The New Shul, and every one makes an effort to lift the songs and prayers of our community.  We gather twice a month to welcome Shabbat with inspired music, teachings, and discussion, led by Rabbi Zach and the Epichorus. Casual dinner follows. Everyone is welcome to attend. Check the calendar for dates.

Feast of Mystics

Rabbi Zach and Chef Micah Fredman (Gramercy Tavern, 11 Madison Park) offer teachings paired with gourmet creations, all based on the holidays of the Jewish calendar. We delight in the music, stories and traditions as we celebrate the festivals. Check the calendar for dates.


Keely Angel and Epichorus musicians lead us through a Saturday morning chanting practice in Hebrew and Sanskrit.  All ages are welcome!  Check the calendar for dates.


Rebbetzin Zivar Amrami leads a contemplative evening for women based in cabalistic sources and customs.

Devotions Collective

Join us as Rabbi Zach welcomes a community of master artisans from diverse fields, united by the spirit of their work, their devotion. In conversation and collaboration, they are generating new modalities for modern spirituality and service. Dates to be announced.

Learning and Discussion Salons with Rabbi Zach

Join Rabbi Zach for a monthly salon, where you can host and collaborate on the theme. Guest speakers, Torah study, Israel-related events... we peer into Judaism’s wisdom on the cluster of feelings, practices, and stories that appear in our tradition and our daily lives. As is always the case with our methodology, we hope the stories we hear and study will illuminate the lived experience of our inner lives, and vice versa.

Each salon is free for members, non-members make a $36 donation.
