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.


YK 5778: Everything You Need To Know

Welcome, Friends!

In 24 hours we will put away our forks and phones and open our hearts to the delicate art of our annual atonement – returning to center, reflecting on our past and taking on the repair of the world we all wish for. So that we can all safely soar high and delve deep, please take a moment to review the Yom Kippur 411 – all details below.

I’m truly honored to serve as your co-pilot along with an extraordinary team of professional staff and many dedicated volunteers. I hope that this sacred time brings us closer together, coming full circle as a community of old and new friends. You are all invited to join us for our annual Break Fast Dinner Banquet – a gorgeous family style meal with the Lab/Shul Team + songs, reflections, and poetry. TICKETS HERE

Gmar Chatima Tova: May we signed and sealed for a good year – for all.

– Rabbi Amichai



I’ve got one more request, rabbinically infused:

When we go to the theater, movies, opera or ball game, we make sure to be on time and not miss the trailers or the opening curtain. Somehow, Shul culture has evolved so that fashionably late is the norm. I want to gently invite and encourage you to please come on time this Yom Kippur. Why? This day is precious and we hope you can participate in the entire arc of each worship event. Less interruption also respects the intention and attention of others present. It makes a huge difference – to us on the Bimah and to each one of us in the pews. Thank you!
