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.


Why Minyan Matters – from Me to We – Kaddish Club on 4/27

Why did Jewish Law proscribe the presence of ten adults for the recital of the mourner’s prayer? Join Amichai at his home in the East Village for a study session + potluck dinner – exploring the benefit of intimacy for individuals and for communities at times of loss, times of joy and all that’s in between. The road from Me to We is all about good and important intentions. 

yahrzeitKaddish Club is not just for active mourners:
We invite you to join Lab/Shul’s  monthly circle of  conversation, contemplation and the recitation of the mourners’ prayer. 

Led by Amichai Lau-Lavie, this circle invites all who are currently within the a year of mourning, those observing a death date of a loved one during this month, and all who stand in solidarity and sympathy with friends, family, community. 

We’ll be meeting in private homes, exploring poetry and prose, tools and traditions, addressing the meaning of mourning and the paths to personal healing and community building. 

The event is free.

Please join us for the next monthly Kaddish Club Tuesday Night, April 28th, 7-9pm 
Address will be sent to those who RSVP.
