Welcome to Lab/Shul, an artist-driven, everybody-friendly, God-optional, pop up, experimental community for sacred Jewish gatherings based in NYC and reaching the world.

  • Museum of Jewish Heritage - 36 Battery Pl, New York, NY 10280

Hey everyone! Advanced registration is now full. BUT!!! Walk-ins are encouraged since we do not expect everyone who RSVP’d to actually show up. Once we reach our capacity of 200 people in the museum, walk-ins will be able to join us in the park for Kabbalat Shabbat and dinner at 8:00pm.

Kick off your summer weekends with friends, open bar, a mini massage, music, sound bath meditation, and the best views of sunset on the Hudson River in downtown. Two pre-Shabbat parties for 20’s and 30’s to end the workweek right.
