The Brotherhood Synagogue
is a progressive congregation in the Conservative Jewish tradition. We seek to meet the needs of American Jewry and to work towards making religious brotherhood a living reality. We invite all to share in the values and traditions of our Jewish faith, striving for the ways of peace and righteousness. Our synagogue is located in downtown New York, on Gramercy Park.
Shavuot Services
Erev Shavuot
Saturday, May 23, 7:30 pm
We will once again follow the practice of engaging in Jewish study on Erev Shavuot, as we commemorate the giving of the Torah. Following a traditional light dairy meal, a study session will be led by Rabbi Daniel Alder. 9:00 pm services and continued communal study at the 14th Street Y will follow.
INTO THE NIGHT at the 14th Street Y
Following study and services here at Brotherhood, we invite you to continue learning together with other members of Downtown Kehillah synagogues in an exciting late night program of music, discussion, study and, of course, food!!

Into The Night puts a contemporary spin on Tikkun Leil Shavuot and is presented by Downtown Jews @ The 14th Street Y. Join for a nocturnal journey through culture, conversation, ritual and cheesecake featuring LABA fellows, LAB/Shul Storahtellers, artists, musicians, teachers and rabbis.

Brotherhood's Cantor Mike Weis will be teaching a session entitled "Persecuting God" at 10:00 pm. In this session, a fascinating Hassidic story about a man consumed by his search for God will be read and discussed. Does the mere act of searching automatically distance us from God? Come to this session and find out.
