Nourishing the soul

Spirituality is a very individual pursuit. At NYMC, we encourage students to take time for reflection and transcendence beyond the immediate here and now. For students who practice religions of particular denominations, the campus and community offer a broad selection of worship services.  

On Campus

Islamic Worship Services:
There is designated space on campus set aside for daily services. To confirm times and dates, please contact Afsar Mohiuddin at (914) 594-4607.

Jewish Services:
The campus synagogue, located in Alumni House, is used for Shacharit services while Mincha and Ma'ariv more often take place in the Medical Education (MEC) Building. To confirm times and dates, contact Sammy Gelnick. Additionally, the College dining hall is Glatt kosher and under the supervision of the Orthodox Union's Kashruth Division.

In the Community

There are many churches, mosques, and synagogues in the surrounding area with a broad selection of available worship services. Please contact Vilma Bordonaro@nymc.edu for information and details related to your specific interest.
