                        About Darkhei Noam

DARKHEI NOAM is a lay-led partnership minyan and halachic Jewish community on the Upper West Side of Manhattan that meets for Shabbat and Holiday services.

We meet at 150 West 85th Street (MCS), between Columbus and Amsterdam Avenues, for Kabbalat Shabbat and Shabbat morning services.

Pesach at DN

We would like to host a Shabbat dinner to help out before Pesach. Please sign up here by Tuesday at noon if you are interested. If there isn’t enough interest, we won't have it and we will let you know asap.

Darkhei Noam has arranged for Rabbi Jason Herman at the West Side Jewish Center to serve as the agent to sell chametz for members of the community. The deadline to complete this form authorizing him to sell your chametz is Tuesday, April 4 at 5pm.

We will daven Shacharit the first days of Pesach at 9:30am at 150 W 85 Street (MCS) and the last days at 9am at 15 W 86 Street (SAJ). Click here for the full schedule.

We would like to make it possible for members of our community to have an opportunity to participate in a traditional Seder in a warm environment. If you will be conducting Seder(s) at home and can accommodate one or more guests, please let us know the number of guests you can host for which Seder(s) by emailing us by Thursday, March 30 at 5pm at and enter "Seder Host" in the subject line. If you would like an invitation, or if you know of a member of our community who would appreciate one, please let us know by Thursday, Marh 30 at 5pm which night(s) at and enter the words "Seder Guest" in the subject line. We will try to accommodate you.
