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.


Match Madness (got Seders plans?)

It’s the first day of spring y’all! Passover is coming up and we’ve got you covered:


– The Lab/Shul Team


 Seder Matching

Want to be a guest at a 1st Night Seder? Hosting and have room for an extra seat?

All year round – and especially on Passover – we are encouraged to welcome guests and strangers to our homes. This is the perfect opportunity to meet new friends from the Lab/Shul community in a more intimate setting and create new Seder memories and traditions. A team of Lab/Shul staff and volunteers are helping make it happen by playing matchmaker.

To participate:

  1. Fill out THIS SURVEY by March 28th.
  2. We’ll do our very best to find you the perfect match and let you know by April 3rd.
  3. Once the match is made the rest is up to the host(s) and guest(s).
