Thank you for supporting the historic Actors’ Temple—which today is a warm and forward-thinking religious institution, providing sanctuary for many Jews of diverse backgrounds.

But, it’s even more than that—in addition to Shabbat and Holiday services, Jewish adult education and more, the halls are open to the community. We host community meetings, rehearsals, and Off Broadway shows.

We appreciate your helping us to maintain our historic Landmark building from 1923 and allowing us to serve the community.

You can make donations with a credit/debit card at the Donation Section of our dedicated Online Store, pay with a credit/debit card offline, or with a check.

We are happy to send you a copy of the book, "Rabbi on 47th Street," by Ann Birstein, daughter of Rabbi Bernard Birstein. This book tells how his friendships with actors made our synagogue The Actors’ Temple.

Wearing our T-shirt shows your commitment to the Actors' Temple, while also being comfortable, and since it only comes in black, you don't have to choose a color. We mostly have size Large, but if you need something else we can check our stock.
