Shabbat Dinner at the Zoo

This Spring we begin the yearlong celebration of the 175th anniversary of our congregation, marking Emanu-El’s exciting journey from a bare loft on the Lower East Side to our majestic sanctuary on Fifth Avenue, and from 33 members to 2,300 households.

And on June 5, we invite you to kick-off the celebration with a special Shabbat Dinner at the Central Park Zoo, where:

  • Longtime members will reunite with old friends
  • New Members will the warm embrace of the Emanu-El community

  • Children will marvel at a fun animated film, giggle at their specially-painted Shabbat faces and enjoy a private visit with the animals
