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. 

This will be our last Shabbat of the season. We will continue daily prayers until Friday morning, June 22. We are recessing for the summer, as we move to our new location TBA, and we restructure to better meet the needs of our community. We are looking forward to welcoming and greeting you again after Labor Day.

We will continue to keep you informed with our newsletter and website. If you need to reach me during the Summer season, you may reach me at my email address at the synagogue. 

Wishing you a marvelous and an enjoyable Summer season.

Rabbi Elie Abadie, M.D.
