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.

Tikkun Leil Shavuot

"Lashon Hakodesh / Holy Language" - May 19, 10:00 PM, Overnight Learning

The Torah was given in 70 languages. What makes any of them holy? How do the forms of Hebrew script embody the Torah as blueprint of the Universe? How does Hebrew relate to Yiddish, Ladino, and other Jewish languages? What is "debate for the sake of heaven" and how do we handle disagreement? What are the consequences of Torah having multiple interpretations? How do we communicate in sacred ways in community, using the power of speech with care? Who gets the authority and opportunity to speak, hear, and teach the language of Torah?
