Review for Town And Village Synagogue, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This is a warm and spiritual shul. I started going because I needed a weekend activity for my two young toddlers during the cold weather months. Both of my children grew up there - and have a strong Jewish foundation. My husband truly enjoyed studying with Rabbi Sebert under the auspices of the Melton Workshop, and torah with Hugh Pollack. I regularly pop into the kitchen during Shabbat, roll up my sleeves and start cooking. When I was experiencing some profoundly troubling personal issues, during a Tzedakah (forgiveness workshop) Rabbi Sebert reassuringly, and sensibly affirmed what I felt from within. We have hosted and have been the recipients of holiday meals. Town and Village Syngagogue has been a wonderful anchor for our family.

Be the 'go-to' place for downtown Jewish life in Manhattan.
