new letter from rabbi abadie

Dear Congregants and Friends,

It has been a wonderful season at the Manhattan East Synagogue since we opened our doors on Rosh HaShana 5778, in September 2017. We have enjoyed your support and your participation. We have grown and we have provided our community with weekly and Holiday Prayer Services, Lectures, Scholars-in-Residence, renown and captivating Speakers, Children’s Programming, delicious Kiddushim, and more. 

As we recessed for the summer, to move to our new location TBA, so we could restructure to better meet the needs of our community, we have had unexpected delays that prevented us from opening after Labor Day and for the High Holy Days.

We will continue to keep you informed, with our newsletter and website, as we progress in our move to the new location. If you need to reach me, you may reach me at my email address at the synagogue. 

We are looking forward to welcoming and greeting you, in the near future, as soon as we relocate.

Wishing you a Shana Toba, Tizku L’Shanim Rabbot Neimot VeTobot.

תזכו לשנים רבות נעימות וטובות

Rabbi Elie Abadie, M.D.
