Welcome to Kehilat Hadar

Kehilat Hadar is an independent, egalitarian, and lay-led community committed to spirited traditional prayer, study and social action. We meet for Shabbat morning services, some Friday nights, holiday services, and educational programs throughout the year. Find out more about KH and how to get more involved!

COVID-19 Update

Last updated  May 20, 2021 at 3:25 PM

Our full plan for in-person services is available here. Below is a summary.

We hold Shabbat morning services and kids programming at Schechter Manhattan. 

  • The COVID-19 Alert Level in NYC is currently High. Our policy remains that masks are optional, but our leadership takes the city's guidance that people "should wear a mask in all indoor settings" very seriously. Accordingly, we want all community members to be aware of and seriously consider the city's guidance.
  • We plan to hold kiddush outdoors, weather permitting. 
  • All eligible participants ages 5+ must be fully vaccinated to attend services indoors (defined as two weeks past the second dose). All eligible participants ages 12+ must be up to date on their vaccinations, including booster doses. See this CDC page regarding the definitions of “fully vaccinated” and “up to date.”
  • Registration is no longer required for services or babysitting.
  • Most seating at services is not distanced, but we will set aside a limited amount of distanced seating for those who prefer it.
  • We also hold Tot Shabbat and Junior Minyan at Schechter. Registration is not required.
  • Please do not attend if you feel sick, COVID or otherwise.

Check out our plan for in-person services for more details on our COVID protocols and registration instructions, and view the calendar for meeting dates and times.
