CSI VACCINATION CAMPAIGN

With vaccines becoming available to more and more people, all signs point to us being able to safely return to our building soon. Vaccination offers the quickest way for us to get back to singing, celebrating, and enjoying the life of our warm community together. As of right now, we know that nearly 60+% of the members of Shearith Israel 16 and over have been vaccinated. Let’s get closer to that 100% together. Please let us know of your vaccination status and if you would like to assist community members in accessing the vaccine

hineini: csi engagement campaign

Hineini means, “Here I am” and it indicates readiness of relationship. When God called to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, Isaiah — they replied “Hineini, Here I am.” Your membership in the Shearith Israel community means the connection is already there. Hineini is a relationship campaign to deepen the connection between the community and you. 

We want to hear from YOU! We are looking forward to fostering connections that are fulfilling — more post-COVID Shabbat dinners, fun group activities, small-group learning and actions. Complete the brief form via the button below to tell us what brings meaning to your life, how you see yourself engaged in the various offerings of the congregation and where, if anywhere, you would like to deepen that engagement.

share a smile yard signs

This Purim Shearith Israel organized a community-wide campaign “Share a Smile... 18 Acts in 18 days!” Each day we suggested an idea for a small act of kindness— a simple way to make the world a little better, brighter and spread kindness to those around you. 

Extend the “Share A Smile” kindness campaign by purchasing a yard sign! They’re a fun reminder to engage in small daily acts of kindness, and hopefully inspire our neighbors to do the same. 100% of the proceeds benefit CSI’s Ahavat Chinam programming, which includes criminal justice reform; supporting immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers; Backpack Buddies, which provides meals to children in need; and the One America Movement, which works to bring people together across religious, racial, and political divides.
