Fort Tryon Center is proud to be the only Glatt Kosher certified healthcare facility in Manhattan and offers a variety of services to benefit our Jewish residents. As our facility serves as a home away from home, we believe that the continuity of our resident’s religious practices is their right and helps them through recovery by providing a strong sense of familiarity and comfort.
We are certified Kosher by the Vaad Harabanim of Queens and have a mashgiach on premises daily. We offer many Cholov Yisroel products and only serve Glatt Kosher meat. Our Chef prepares culturally Jewish cuisine for during Shabbos and Yom Tov Holidays.
There are 3 minyanim daily throughout the week and on Shabbos and Jewish holidays. The daily minyanim are enhanced by the presence of visitors from the neighborhood, giving our residents an additional opportunity to socialize with locals.
The minyan schedule is as follows:
Sunday – Friday Shacharis: 8:00 am
Sunday – Friday summer- Mincha and Mariv: 7:00 pm (call for winter zmanim)
Shabbos Shacharis: 9:15 am
There is a special atmosphere on Shabbos at Fort Tryon. The Shabbos meals are served along with the regular traditional foods you are accustomed to back home. Every Saturday afternoon there is an Oneg Shabbos which is augmented by local boys and girls from the local yeshivas.
Fort Tryon is equipped with special Shabbos entrances and Shabbos elevators to serve the Jewish community.
Family members who wish to be with loved ones over Shabbos and Jewish holidays and are unable to travel home are welcome to stay at our beautifully furnished Shabbos apartment. This fully stocked apartment is located in the building next door and is fully equipped with all the amenities to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. Fresh bedding and towels are provided and the kitchen is stocked regularly. Please call in advance to reserve.
At Fort Tryon, your loved one will experience the Jewish holidays in an uncompromised fashion. On Passover, our facility becomes kosher for Passover, serving strictly non gebrochts and on Sukkos we build a huge, lovely suka on our beautiful terrace with local families joining us for the meals.
Throughout the week and especially on Shabbos, students and volunteers from local yeshivas and Bikur Cholim add an energetic presence to our halls, bringing joy and smiles to our residents.
