Update this content.
Lincoln Square Synagogue is delighted to be partnering with the wonderful WebYeshiva.org to bring a world of Torah learning to our community and help broadcast the Torah of LSS around the world!
The new Tuesday Night Gemara B'Shana with Rabbi Shaul Robinson program will now be broadcast live around on the internet. This course, dedicated to the memory of Bruce Ritholtz, a"h, is a tremendous project which will undertake the ambitious goal of studying and completing an entire tractate of Talmud each year, followed by a siyum to mark its completion at the time of Bruce's yahrtzeit between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur.
The class will meet at Lincoln Square Synagogue on Tuesdays at 7:15pm EST, and be broadcast live around the world from Web Yeshiva.org's interactive online classroom. The classes will also be recorded for later viewing. Even if you are attending the class in person you are strongly encouraged to sign up at Web Yeshiva.org to receive class materials and updates, and join the world wide learning!
Please join us live at LSS or online at WebYeshiva.org to participate in this incredible course of study. Click here to learn more and to register.
Rabbi Robinson's Interview with DNAinfo
Rabbi Robinson sat down with Emily Frost of DNAinfo and spoke about the way the Jewish population has changed in the neighborhood, the lack of competition among synagogues here and what lies ahead.
Emily: Just to start off, if you could give me the broad strokes of describing Lincoln Square Synagogue to our listeners, people who've never been by it, never been inside. What is it all about?
Rabbi Robinson: Okay, Lincoln Square Synagogue is a community. It's a welcoming community. It's a very diverse community. We are an Orthodox synagogue, Modern Orthodox synagogue. Arguably, our history ... We're the very first ever legitimately truly Modern Orthodox synagogue, and that is to say that our members strive to, in their own life, live very rich, observant Jewish lives, and at the same time remain very engaged in the wider world and the wider community around them. We stand for really trying to be as welcoming as possible and really trying to encourage as many different models within Judaism of observance and expression.
