Thanksgiving at Shearith Israel

Congregation Shearith Israel has been conducting Thanksgiving services since President George Washington first declared this holiday in 1789. Jews participated side by side with other Americans in fighting for and establishing the United States as an independent country. At our services on Thanksgiving Day morning, we chant several chapters of Psalms – parts of the Hallel – at the conclusion of the morning prayers. We also recite the prayers for the governments of America and Israel.
