Weekly Update - November 18

Dear Friends,

The attached video (above) highlights how our motto, “making the ordinary extraordinary,” was especially true this year. We were the first synagogue in New York to fully open with a “100% vaccinated, 100% outdoors” policy, enjoying together the inspiration of our services, a full complement of fantastic programs, and the unique spirit of our oasis for Jewish life.

In the Fall, we have continued with a litany of extraordinary events and activities. Our daily minyan, the only minyan on the East End, continues with twice-daily services. We enjoy large congregations at Shabbat services from those looking to enjoy the autumn beauty of the Hamptons, the warmth of our community, and a welcome respite from the city.

This past weekend, we experienced a most meaningful Kristallnacht Commemoration and are looking forward to a groundbreaking Thanksgiving Weekend Concert, followed by eight special programs to celebrate Chanukah. Later this winter, we will embark upon the “sprucing up” and beautification of our synagogue campus.

At the same time, we are already hearing from members of our congregation who, despite being away from the Hamptons, stay connected to The Hampton Synagogue through our unique television platform. Over the past year, our JBS platform expanded to NBC Comcast network and now reaches 76 million homes, including every major Jewish population center in America. We are so proud to share our extraordinary services with our global congregation, and thrilled that, via television, we can be a united congregation all year long.

Your year-end gift enables The Hampton Synagogue to maintain and enhance our weekly televised services and programs. Cantor Hershtik & the choir will be recording new selections into the winter, and we are upgrading our equipment and overall quality. Our campaign goal of $100,000 will support year-round JBS production.

To make your gift at this time of $1,080, $1,800, $2,500, or $3,600, please click the link below or call 631.288.0534 ext.10.

With best wishes for a happy Chanukah and healthy winter season to you and your loved ones,

Carol Levin

We salute our “minyanaires” who are maintaining the strength of our morning and evening services. Special thanks to Rabbi Michael Rascoe for conducting our daily morning minyan. We are proud to provide this noble service – the only year-round daily minyan in the Hamptons and a 75 mile radius on the East End.
