re:TURN to re:LOVE – Lab/Shul’s September

Hey Summer Lovers,

Yes, I know, beach days are numbered. But it’s going to be a fabulous fall season and I’m excited to welcome us all back to a new year with new focus and fashions. 

Join us this September to prep for the High Holy Days through my daily Prepent blog, our High Holy Bootcamp, the first Shabbat AM of the year (back at City Winery!) and Isaiah Sokolic’s B-Mitzvah – open to the community. 

Don’t forget to reserve your seats for the High and Holy Days and join us as SeasonPass holders to celebrate all year round. 

See you all soon,
Amichai & The Lab/Shul Team
