ALL ticket options are available here.
Clearly ahead of his time, ten years before covid, Rabbi Steven Blane founded Congregation Sim Shalom which was the only synagogue in the world that was completely online and offered worship services.
At the same time, he founded the online rabbinical school, JSLI – Jewish Spiritual Leaders Institute. To date, Rabbi Blane and his staff have trained and ordained over 200 rabbis and cantors who serve Jewish communities around the world.
For the past few years, Rabbi Blane has led Jazzy High Holiday Services with his quartet to sold-out crowds at the iconic Bitter End club in Manhattan’s West Village.
This year, there will be only 70 places available for the morning services of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. For lucky and savvy New Yorkers, spending the summer holidays at an iconic location with a creative and musical rabbi and his band will be an experience to savor.
