Congregation Mikveh Israel, Philadelphia 


I’m out of town for work and taking advantage of the opportunity to attend Shabbat service at an American synagogue that was established in 1740 — Congregation Mikveh Israel in Philadelphia.   

According to the website, the congregation has changed only a few aspects of the service since its founding: the sermon is now in English, they no longer pray for the English monarch, and they now include a prayer for Israel.  

I’m genuinely happy to be celebrating Shabbat in a new town, and I hope everyone else has fun Shabbat plans as well!!! 

Shabbat shalom, jen
