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.


Manifest Sanctuary This Wknd


Like so many of us at this time of transition, we at Lab/Shul are reflecting on what’s next, focusing on our role in co-creating opportunities for sanctuary. We are partnering with allies to take care of ourselves and of each other, providing spaces of safety, healing, action and support. Hundreds of you joined us this past week in Washington Sq. Park and Judson Memorial Church for worship and open-hearted conversation circles. Just today we joined hundreds of congregations of faith from all over the country and pledged to be a sanctuary that resists deportation and discrimination.

We invite you to join us THIS WEEKEND for more sanctuary building – with body, mind and soul:
