Daily Services are held in the main Sanctuary and Beit Midrash, congregants consist of regular members, and visitors from Israel and Abroad. On Shabbatot and Chagim we have Services for Young Marrieds and singles.

We run a Kollel program for Retirees and Torah classes are led by scholarly Rabbis.  This most unique learning program in Hebrew for retirees is attended by approx. 100+ students daily.

We have a daily Daf Yomi shiur in English. On Monday morning there is a lecture program in English attended by approx. 350+ ladies.

Nissim Saal

Chief Chazan

Nissim Saal, the world renown Chazan who comes to us from New York, currently serves as the chief Chazan at the Yeshurun Central Synagogue. Nissim leads the Tefillot on the Yamim Noraim and on other selected Shabbatot throughout the year. With his phenomenal voice, Nissim manages to touch the souls of the congregation and gives them an unforgettable spiritual experience. He flows in prayer with small touches of cantorial and classical pieces, and everything is woven into the prayer in a unique manner that touches the hearts of all the mitpalelim and connects them to Avihem Shebashamayim. There is no doubt that the experience of praying with Nissim Saal is an uplifting and inspiring experience that gives an additional special touch to all prayers.

Asher Hainovitz

Chazan Emeritus

Serves as Chazan Emeritus, and officiates in the sanctuary next to Chief Chazan Nissim Saal. Chazan Hainovitz also serves as a Shliach Tzibbur at Yeshurun Central Synagogue and leads the tefillot on selected Shabbatot throughout the year. His unique style is characterized by the intimacy of a prayer leader, with episodes of classical tunes that are beloved by the worshipers.
