We’re turning 13 and we’re throwing ourselves a B’Mitzvah party. Here are some simple, easy ways to get involved!
- Participate in our signature cocktail contest: Whether you’re a master mixologist or yousimply like to dabble with a bit of this and a smidgen of that - we challenge you to create The New Shul’s Signature Cocktail! The friendly competition (cocktail and mocktail divisions) will take place at the beginning of the event. You provide the ingredients and the Tom Cruise moves, all guests will get a taste and vote for the winner. Champs get a trophy and bragging rights!
- Buy tickets! The invites are going out very soon. RSVP and bring your friends.
- Help us solicit items for our raffle to mind the gap between tuition and our expenses to run our fabulous educational programs at The New Shul: Have a favorite coffee shop, nail salon, or restaurant in the neighborhood? We bet you do, so why not ask them if they’d like to help us by donating gift certificates or other items to our raffle.
- Volunteer to help us make sure the party goes smoothly: to make our space beautiful and keep in that way, we will need volunteers to help with set up/decorating, during the event, and to stay and help with clean up. The event is on Saturday, May 5th from 4-7pm, so if you are around to help a little at any time, we would appreciate it!

We will be joining forces again this year with Project Ezra delivering food boxes to the Jewish elderly on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. The food boxes will contain all the ingredients the seniors will need for a kosher Passover. In addition to just dropping off the food, you have a chance to bring a smile to the door as you greet (and hug) this homebound population.
Sunday, April 1st
Start Time - 9:30am
465 Grand Street
New York, NY 10002
All volunteers should have a car or join forces with someone who does. You will need a car to deliver the packages - it is too far to walk. If you can help, please RSVP directly to Dalia at 212-982-4124. Thanks!
