Darkhei Noam



Darkhei Noam is a lay-led community that comes together for Shabbat and holiday services.  We are committed to creating a tefillah atmosphere that is halakhic, spiritual and inclusive -- providing opportunities for women to lead many of its portions and participate fully in the Torah service.  Please explore our website to learn more about our minyan, our social and educational programs and to sign up for our weekly newsletter.  We invite you to join us!

We meet at the B'nai Jeshurun Community House (formerly the Heschel School) located at 270 West 89th Street between West End Avenue and Broadway.

Mishnayot Learning in Memory of Naftali, Gilad and Eyal -


It is a long established custom in Jewish communities upon a death to learn mishnayot in memory and for the benefit of the soul of the deceased. The letters of נשמה transpose to the letters of משנה. With the death of Gilad, Eyal and and Nafatali, we feel so helpless in the face of such pain and loss. Learning Torah in their memories is one way to intentionally bring more life and goodness into this world that needs Torat Hesed so much. We ask that you think about taking on one tractate to learn over sheloshim.  The Sheloshim will be marked on July 30 with a siyum. More details will follow.
