Welcome to New Toco Shul

NTS is an intellectually vibrant, family friendly Orthodox synagogue. We are founded on the ideas that every individual has unique abilities and perspectives, that we are obligated to share our talents with others, and that our community is strongest when our members contribute to its success and well-being. Our rabbinic and lay partners work together to provide a platform for sophisticated and nuanced Torah, reflective and meaningful Tefillah, and supportive and enriching Gemilut Chassadim.

Letter from The Rabbi

Dear Friends and Supporters,
After a difficult year for all of us, I am happy to report that NTS is stronger than ever and ready for business.
A few changes you should know about:

  1. Our Shabbat morning minyan now begins (as it used to) at 9:00 AM with pesukei dezimra. This week we have restored the lifting and wrapping of the Sefer Torah. Kabbbalat Shabbat this evening is at 6:45!
  2. I am delighted to report that we will resume Kiddush on the second day of Shavuot with a blow-out, outdoor, dairy Kiddush from Spicy Peach! If you have not been coming for a while and are returning, please let us know so that we can arrange seating accordingly. If you have not yet seen our renovated sanctuary, we hope it will be a pleasant surprise.
  3. This year, primarily for logistic reasons, we will not host all-night learning on Shavuot. We will however have special classes and learning opportunities over the course of the holiday. Members interested in the traditional Sefardic Tikkun run by Rabbi Boroosan should contact Levi Afrah at Netzach Israel.
  4. Children who can sit with their parents are welcome back to shul. We have missed the kids! (And we’ll let you know when childcare/access to the kids room resumes.)
  5. Our daily minyan remains strong and remains the only year-round Vatikin minyan in Atlanta. After Shavuot we are thinking of trying an early plag ha-mincha minyan for summer hours. Let me or the gabbai know if you have any opinions.

Our approach throughout the pandemic has been cautious and as transparent as possible. It is important to remember that while we are doing much better than we were a few months ago, we are not entirely out of the woods yet.
Because we are all in this together, we will not unmask as a shul until it is judged that we can all do so safely. We are continuing to offer indoor and back porch seating and are continuing with somewhat reduced separation of seats—which is why we need you to tell us when you are coming back!
I look forward to seeing all of you.
Bivracha Rabba,
Don Seeman
Rabbi NTS
