Weekday Morning Minyan

Anyone who has ever visited Ansche Chesed’s morning minyan will tell you that it is something very special.

To Schmooze or not to Schmooze: The Un-Distancing Hour

We'd like to announce the rebranding and re-imagining of the Thursday afternoon Kiddush cocktail hour, which has been a lovely way for people to connect during this crazy time. But we thought it needed a transformation into something a bit more specific. Before the pandemic, Kiddush has traditionally been a way for people at Ansche Chesed to connect with one another, to share milestones, to kvetch and moan a bit, to express support to friends who are going through one…

During these summer months, the Not Shabbat Morning Study will be lay led. Contact Debby Mowshowitz at dbm2@columbia.edu with any questions. JOIN VIA ZOOM
