Village Yontif is an egalitarian, humanist congregation in Greenwich Village. All are welcome to explore their spirituality, as well as their connection to our ancestors, each other, and the melting pot that is New York City, through our inclusive services which offer prayer, song, ritual, story, reflection, and commentary.


We are currently in the process of obtaining a 501(c)4 designation. While that application is pending, we are being fiscally sponsored by Living Lotus Project, now enabling us to provide you with a tax-deductible donation option.
