What you'll do
Peel back the layers of the private and secluded world of the Hasidic Jewish Community in Yonkers, and experience a mystical and enlightening Shabbat. Friday night, we'll meet at the Welton home for light drinks (tea/beer/juice) and snacks. After an intimate introduction session, we'll take a short walk to the local Synagogue. At the Lincoln Park Jewish Center you will experience an uplifting Friday night service conducted in Biblical Hebrew with ancient melodies stretching back hundreds of years. Following the service, we'll sit down with the community and enjoy authentic Kosher wine and pastry (gluten free option available upon request). We will complete the evening with a gourmet, homemade Friday night meal in our home, including traditional matzo ball soup, meat dishes, salads, and dessert. Many have come to love our Q&A session between bites, a great time to ask all of your questions about the traditions, culture and controversies related to the Jewish community.
I'm an Orthodox Rabbi who grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and then traveled the world studying the Torah heritage of my people. I've worked on a Kosher farm in New Zealand, led interfaith work in Sydney, studied Talmud in Montreal, and was a spiritual leader for Westhampton Beach. Currently, I serve in the United States Air Force, visit low-income families in the Bronx Projects and lead a warm and welcoming Jewish community in Yonkers, NY. My degrees include specialties in science, education, film and Talmudic law.
