An independent synagogue in Northern Manhattan

As an unaffiliated congregation that has long been an anchor of the Jewish community in Washington Heights and Inwood, we have thrived by evolving with our neighborhood and our membership. Today, the congregation is a diverse mix of families and individuals from many backgrounds. Our egalitarian services and our traditional ritual — spiritual, tuneful and participatory — attract people of all levels of observance.

It can profoundly change our routines, our experience of community, and our relationship to Judaism. It can be a spiritual practice in itself. These two sessions will invite parents to share from our experiences as we also search for Jewish resources and rituals that can sustain us in the stressful and sacred work of raising children. Best of all -- Childcare will be provided onsite!
