Traditional seating.  

Also a historic commemoration honoring the 23 who, fleeing Brazil's inquisition, landed in the New Amsterdam harbor close by to the Wall Street Synagogue a few days before Rosh Hashanah of 1664 .  A remembrance of the founding families of American Jewry and most appropriate on this holiday whose biblical name is not Rosh Hashanah but the "Yom Hazikaron" Day of Remembrance.  They are much deserving to be honored for contributions to American Jewish by our synagogue whose founders included descendants of the original 23 pioneers.  These pioneering souls braved piracy, storms of the open seas and other dangers to be free to practice the traditions of their fathers and forefathers. 

This concept of the "Jewish Pilgrim Fathers" will be developed and will inform our High Holiday Services throughout the season.

Additional services (from 9:30 a.m. to 10:45 a.m.) for those experienced in Hebrew.
