Welcome to the Beginners Program

Over the years and decades, Lincoln Square Synagogue's Beginners programs have achieved wide acclaim, to the point where they are often regarded as a model for adult Jewish outreach throughout the world.

Lincoln Square has served as a spawning ground for many noted educational and outreach programs in America. These innovative programs include the Beginners Service, Turn Friday Night Into Shabbat, the Crash Course in Hebrew Reading, intensive women's Torah study programs, one-on-one study programs, summer institutes and a host of other programs. Lincoln Square Synagogue is proud to be regarded as one of the foremost centers for Jewish return in the world.

We hope that you will avail yourselves of the wonderful Beginners programs and become part of the LSS family. We look forward to getting to know you personally, and are certain that the experience will be mutually enriching. 

Welcome aboard.

With best wishes,
Ephraim Buchwald
Rabbi, Beginners Services
