Pesah Mahzor Lending Program
While it is our fervent hope that we will be able to pray together in the synagogue at some point on / during Pesah, it is possible the synagogue will not be able to open. As many of our community members do not usually spend the holiday in Manhattan, we know you may not have a Pesah Mahzor to use at home.
The synagogue is prepared to lend the Mahzorim in exchange for a donation of $18 per Mahzor that is borrowed so that you can pray at home. All borrowed Mahzorim must be returned to the synagogue upon its reopening for regular services.
We recommend you pray at home at the times listed in our Pesah Bulletin so the entire community can pray at the same time.
Your contribution will go a long way towards helping maintain the costs of running the synagogue functions, even while the building closed.
Should someone not be in the position to make a donation please contact us via email.
Check out our annual Pesah Bulletin for this year's Pesah Schedule and a review of Selected Laws & Customs of the Holiday.
On Ereb Pesah, Wednesday, April 8th, every male first born is obligated to fast. A first born may waive his obligation by attending a Siyum, a conclusion of a tractate of Talmud, and partake in a festive meal. While we may not be able to partake in a Siyum in person, you may fulfill your obligation by participating in our Zoom Siyum through the synagogue at 8 am. Join the EJSS Zoom Siyum Here.
If you are not able to join the EJSS Zoom Siyum, you may find 5-6 Siyums through TCLive.org.
