sisterhood + hias refugee shabbat 5784

On February 3, Congregation Shearith Israel observed Sisterhood Shabbat. The 2024 theme, “And We Gather,” celebrated the 60+ women and girls leading services, as they read in Parashat Yitro how the Israelites gathered at the base of Mount Sinai to receive the Ten Commandments. This occasion was punctuated by many joyous recitations of the shehecheyanu prayer, highlighting the welcoming aspect of this Shabbat, and the diversity of women at Shearith Israel.

The Congregation also honored HIAS Refugee Shabbat with a D’var Torah from Paedia Mixon, CEO of New American Pathways, with whom we've partnered in our Shearith Israel for Good refugee efforts.

The Sisterhood Shabbat service can be viewed on YouTube here.
