We have started to re-open the Kol Yisrael building to the public based on New York State Phase 3 Reopening Guidelines. On-site activities are currently limited to Shabbat morning services, where we are following social distancing guidelines of 12 foot spacing of seating. The wearing of face coverings is required in the building. We continue to provide on line programming using Zoom and other internet connection sources. We have a Friday night service on Zoom prior to Shabbat with Rabbi Jacob. Shabbat morning services are broadcast via Zoom, in addition to the on site attendance. Please check our Facebook page for links, if not available on our website. We are learning quickly how to improve our communication. For questions contact our Synagogue office at 562-5604 or Rabbi Jacob at 610-656-7345. Stay Safe.

Food Bank of the Hudson Valley Project
With many people out of work and schools closed, many people in our community are suffering from a shortage of food due to the spread of COVID-19. Congregation Agudas Israel would like to help families in this crisis by donating to the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley. For every dollar donated the Food Bank can provide 4 meals to people in need. So an $18.00 donation can provide 72 meals!
We will be collecting donations until May 15, 2020. If you would like to help support our community, please send your donation to:
290 North Street
Newburgh, NY 12550
Checks should be made out to Congregation Agudas Israel. Note in the memo that this is a donation to the Food Bank.
All the donations received by May 15 will be collected and sent to the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley as a donation from Congregation Agudas Israel. Note that so far we have raised over $1000 for this mitzvah!
