The Yeshurun Central Synagogue, was founded 94 years ago. The Synagogue’s doors are open to all Jews, who are welcome to join us for our daily Services, and learning programs. The Yeshurun Central Synagogue is a modern orthodox synagogue. The Synagogue has a unique atmosphere, and the congregation consists of regular members and visitors from Israel and abroad. In Pirkei Avot (The Ethics of our Fathers) Shimon HaTzadik said ” The world depends on three things –on Tefilla (Prayer) , Torah Study and Charity. The Yeshurun Adheres to these precepts.
Daily Services are held in the main Sanctuary and Beit Midrash, congregants consist of regular members, and visitors from Israel and Abroad. On Shabatot and Chagim we have Services for Young Marrieds and singles up to 35 years old. The Services on Shabatot and Chagim are conducted by the Synagogue Cantor Asher Hainovitz. The Cantors interpretation of the Teffilot (Prayers) are both beautiful and meaningful. Our learning program in Hebrew for retirees is attended by 250+ students daily.
We have a daily Daf Yomi lecture in English. On Monday morning there is a lecture program in English attended by 350+ ladies. Our Charity fund does not carry any expenses, 100% of all donations is distributed. We hold a Seder for 100 participants, who have no means to make their own seder.
A Glorious Past and promising Future
This message is for you personally-both the internet surfer and the person who was, and is, still davening in Yeshurun!
In the midst of the 10th decade of Yeshurun, it is our duty and mission to ensure continuity, while retaining the tradition of Yeshurun in its modernized form.
We are also placing emphasis on encouraging younger members to join us in the Spiritual, Torah guided, and community philosophy of our Shul.
There are those people who prefer the uplifting services led by our wonderful Cantor, Asher Hainovitz in the main Shul, or those mainly younger, who prefer the services in the adjoining Berman Beit Midrash, but all take much pride and joy in seeing the special kiddies Minyan flourish!
Baruch Hashem, there is an abundance of Torah Shiurim, both in the Beit Midrash, Shul and on the internet, broadcast live from Yeshurun.
Of note, is the newly equipped computer room upstairs, donated by Prof. Mervyn Gottsman, which has a vast “library”of Jewish sources.
We encourage those who would like to learn there in “Chavruta”, quietly in front of one of the computers, or those who would like to start learning in small classes there, to avail themselves of this new facility.
Young people, after kissing your kids good night-we are there for you to come over to learn.
As in every year, we are gearing up for Pesach, and in particular, looking after those who need and enjoy the results of our “Maot Chittim”fund, those who enjoy our communal Seder, and those that receive vouchers from us on your behalf to purchase food.
We should be grateful for your contribution to this fund, as the number of those in need, seems sadly, always to be increasing!
As we approach Yom Haatzmaut to celebrate 70 years of an independent Israel, Cantor Asher Hainovitz will of course be leading a very special festive service in the evening, with the annual Yom Haatzmaut concert to follow in the next afternoon. Details soon on this website.
To conclude, I should like to thank with deep appreciation, those who make all this possible for you-members of the board, executive staff, volunteers and workers, and take pleasure in wishing you all a “Chag Sameach”in good health and joy!
