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.


How 2 Flame: All The Info

Lab/Shul’s Hanukkah fundraising campaign, #POWEROFEIGHT, is your chance to celebrate, illuminate and help us keep our lights shining bright for another year ahead.

Now entering our 5th year, Lab/Shul’s everybody friendly, artist-driven, God-optional, experimental mission has created sacred community for thousands of people in NYC and around the world. Dedicated to exploring, creating and celebrating innovative opportunities for contemplation, life cycle rituals, the arts, life-long learning and social justice, we seek to nourish our thirst for meaning, connection, spirituality and community.

Our goal is to raise $30,000 in 8 days from December 11th – December 19th. We’ll be sending out 8 digital gifts from Lab/Shul to the world, and, hopefully, receiving gifts in return from the world to Lab/Shul.

Just want to donate? Amazing. Thank you. DONATE HERE!
