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.


Longest Night, Shortest Video

Last night, ahead of the longest night of the year, we kicked off our Thank-A-Thon year-end campaign, simply sharing gratitude with Sabbath Angels, SeasonPass holders (congrats Lori Roth Gale on winning your SeasonPass in our High Holy Survey raffle!!!), Board Members and all who co-create this community for everyone, needed now more than ever.

Check out this little video we filmed, stay tuned for more thank you gifts, and please help us #PassLightOn year round. End 2016 with gratitude to Lab/shul:
