I have been going to Kehilat Hadar for seven years and my experiences would be too many to write about. I am not your typical Hadarnik (20-30 years old), but rather in my 60s. Hadar has helped me acheive a new level of spirituality that I thought was long gone. It espouses a degree of inclusivity rarely found in Jewish organizations.
AMAZING COMMUNITY!!!!!!! AMAZING PRAYER EXPERIENCE!!!!!! AMAZING LEARNING!!!!!! there is a reason that people come from all over the country to experience davening at Hadar.
I attended a shabbat morning service and enjoyed the ruach that day-wonderful to be in a group of people where most knew how to pray- it enhances it for everyone else. I also studied one evening a couple of years ago in a beit midrash type of setting- most enjoyable. I don't live in NYC, so my attendance is infrequent. They do great work
exceptionally talented, knowledgeable and devoted rabbis, staff and members. it is always a joy, intellectually and spiritually, to attend their classes.
I am so happy that Kehilat Hadar exists, especially in my neighboorhood! What a wonderful place to daven and meet interesting, kind, like-minded people. Kehilat Hadar's services are spirited and keep drawing me back - I am excited to get up in the morning to pray there!
