Shabbos at the Altneu is exciting, warm, and engaging. We welcome Jews of all backgrounds, all ages — on a typical Shabbos, one can find yeshiva students sitting alongside community members who have never gone to shul before; in our 'pews' sit entrepreneurs and professors, artists and doctors, actors and tech leaders, scientists and lawyers, filmmakers and foreign diplomats.
Walking around our kiddush room, you might hear a mix of English, Russian, French, Hebrew, and German, and more — we love that New York City brings Jews of all cultures to one place. Here, we dream of building a space where high-level study, inspiration and community meet.
In a city which can sometimes feel cold and anonymous, we are committed to building a joyous and warm space, one that speaks to the mind, heart, and soul.
We meet on Shabbat Friday evenings and Saturday mornings at unique venues on the Upper East Side. Fill out this digital connect card to get on the list and receive information.
Currently, we offer Monday night halacha (Jewish law) classes for men; Tuesday evenings (Zoom) classes on general Jewish ideas and the Torah portion open to all; Shabbat afternoon parsha class after kiddush; monthly Torah text study classes for women in members' homes.
A central part of community life is celebrating the joys and mourning the losses together. Please be in touch directly with Rabbi Goldschmidt at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss.
