Art At The Heart Of Stanton St. Revival
One of the last of the tenement synagogues in midst of a growth spurt.
“We’ve been around for a hundred years and we want to be around for another hundred years,” Rabbi Aviad Bodner, (YCT ’16) spiritual leader of the synagogue since 2014, told The Jewish Week. He is at the helm of a new project to restore the entire building. Members credit Rabbi Bodner with helping grow the synagogue, which has seen its membership jump from about 30 units when he was hired to 115 this year.
