Finding a Shul a Home

Seminary Leadership Project alumnus Rabbi Aaron Finkelstein was ordained by Yeshivat Chovevei Torah last spring. Rabbi Finkelstein founded the Prospect Heights Shul, the only Modern Orthodox synagogue between Flatbush and the Lower East Side. According to a 2002 UJA-Federation study, this area is home to over 25,000 Jews. There are many Jewish cultural organizations and other synagogues in that area, largely led by Chabad rabbis, but no Modern Orthodox synagogues. So far, the Prospect Heights Shul is a synagogue without a home. Service locations each week are announced on the synagogue’s website and facebook group. Currently, the synagogue is searching for a permanent home where members can fill their spiritual needs, which include a combination of Jewish law and social action.
