The Synagogue for the Arts offers a full schedule of daily minyanim and Shabbat and holiday services, as well as educational, social and cultural programs. Our congregation encompasses tremendous variety. We are both many communities, and one.
Our building's award-winning architecture provides a remarkable space for prayer and meditation. It is a magnet, drawing in those souls seeking closer connection to their heritage.
In addition to our traditional services, there are also special services organized by our women's group , community services organized and led by the congregation, holiday learner's services, and services for children.
The congregation was renamed "Synagogue for the Arts" to reflect the nature of the community in which it now found itself. A conscious effort was made, to reach out to the unaffiliated Jews among the area's new, creative residents. The Gallery was established and became an ongoing facet of the Synagogue's activity.
The climate of welcome, openness and acceptance continues. By 2006, the Synagogue for the Arts had transformed itself from a synagogue focused on the needs of the business community, into a dynamic, full service synagogue, exceeding the wildest dreams of its founders more than 60 years ago.
The Synagogue for the Arts, with its award-winning architecture and its art-filled social hall/gallery, is a truly remarkable setting for weddings, bris, Bar/Bat Mitzvah and family or professional events. In warmer weather, the plaza is perfect for cocktail hours or greeting people before a meeting. This is one of the best downtown Tribeca event-rental spaces available.
