Shearith pulls out all the stops for Purim! Don’t miss our Family Megillah Reading and Celebration.
Family Passover Seder
Saturday, March 27 at 4pm
In less than two hours, relive the Passover story, discover your inner child, and eat a delicious Seder meal. Rabbis Wallach and Roffman lead this light-hearted, spunky exodus from Egypt.
Havdalah and Movie Night
Each January we gather to enjoy dinner and Havdalah, the beautiful ritual that ends Shabbat. Then stay and enjoy a popular family movie!
A Shabbat experience that invites every single person to engage in the magic and love of Shabbat and community followed by our highly-anticipated annual celebration of new life in our Shearith community! We begin with Shababa, followed by our Tiny Treasures ceremony to welcome all new babies. That service begins at 11:45 am during the main Shearith service. Families of babies receive a Keepsake Book.

Celebrate summer with sunshine and mess. Play with mud, slime, paint, foam, ice sculptures, and other gooey things—the best part is that this doesn’t take place in your living room!
