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.

In honor of Yom ha'atzmaut and the UWS Celebrates Israel festivities, DN is proud to co-sponsor with Drisha a discussion with Avivah Gottleib Zornberg, entitled: "I am a stranger:" Becoming Ruth.
Ruth is a stranger in more senses than one. Who is this unknown woman who is destined to become mother of royalty? What is the process by which she finds her way into a foreign and unwelcoming culture and religious tradition? How does destiny come about? For Avivah Gottleib Zornberg's bio, please click here. The event will take place Sunday, May 4 at 3:00 pm. Reservations are required. Registration available shortly, so please check back in with us!
