Shabbat of Hope

October 21, 2023    
11:30 am - 1:30 pm

Shabbat Noah, October 20-21

The 5784 season premiere of Rabbi Soloveichik’s Friday Night Lights kicks off with a special talk inspired by our symbols of hope, our three sets of Myer Myers rimonim. Admired by experts and collectors of American Judaica, these rimonim are all in ritual use at Shearith Israel during the High Holidays season soon after which they are reloaned to their temporary abodes at the New-York Historical Society, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, and at the Touro Synagogue, respectively. Myer Myers was the preeminent Jewish silversmith of the colonial era, a congregant and Parnas (President) of Shearith Israel.

This can’t-miss Shabbat will feature:

  • A very special season premiere of Rabbi Soloveichik’s Friday Night Lights
  • An exhibition of our three sets of historic rimonim crafted by famed colonial silversmith Myer Myers
  • A major lecture from Rabbi Soloveichik on Shabbat morning
  • A festive kiddush

Come for one, come for all!
