News

In these tragic and scary times we stand with all those victimized by senseless hatred and fanaticism, at home, in Israel, and abroad. We pray for safety, healing, and peace.

 

We wish a Mazal Tov to the Lebewohl Family upon the birth of Emily Rachel (אסתר רחל), born to Cara & Josh Lebewohl.

 

We wish a Mazal Tov to Michelle Zigelman & Ari Rosenblum upon the birth of Ava Zigi (אביה פריידא).

 

The Annual Dinner was a great success! We are very grateful to Shelly & Elie Yudewitz, Suzanne Dance & Andrew ObinVivian Klaus, Joan Nachmani, Tali Zilberman & David Neuhaus, and Alan Schwartz, for all their work in planning the annual dinner. We also thank the more than 150 people in attendance and the nearly 200 people overall whose financial contributions helped us raise well over $100K for our synagogue.

 

Torah Readers: We are looking for men who can prepare to read at Shabbat Mincha (and possibly at Shacharit during the week as well) throughout the year. A schedule of readers is being maintained. If you can commit to any dates, please contact Rabbi Bellino. We are grateful to Jonathan Falik who will read this week. The next available Mincha leining is on May 5th (the afternoon reading is Behar). We are looking for women to prepare aliyot for a Women’s Torah Reading  in the near future. Rabbi Bellino is happy to help anyone learn how to prepare a reading.

 

Please continue to assist our weekday morning Minyan. Consider increasing your commitment to community and synagogue by attending.

 

Our plentiful and delicious Kiddushes on Sixth Street greatly enhance our synagogue and community. To sponsor or to co-sponsor a Friday night Kiddush, a Shabbat Kiddush, a Shabbocktail, our Shabbat Shabeer supply, or a Seudah Shelishit, contact Rabbi Bellino. The next available Shabbat Kiddush for sponsorship is May 5th (Emor / Cinco de Mayo).

May 6th - Feral Hasids Photo Exhibit
Feral Hasids is a story in photographs of religious New Yorkers escaping captivity from modern shtetl life. The men and women photographed are fervently pious, yet unashamed and feral. Aaron Moeller used Gonzo journalistic tactics to capture their experiences on camera, traveling to music festivals, forests, and rural landscapes around Upstate New York, sensitively placing himself in each episode to help birth a new sense of ritual, a new American pastime.

It's Sixth Street's Annual Mothers' Day Kiddush! For $54 you can be named as a contributor. The names of your daughters, mothers, grandmothers, teachers, or virtually anyone you choose, will be listed. Click here to register.

Next Friday night, on Shabbat Ki Tissa, March 2nd, we will host a Meet Your Neighbors Shabbat Dinner, which will bring together our Jewish community with people who are experiencing homelessness. Through dinner, song, and conversation, we will enjoy the unique opportunity to meet our neighbors!

 

Meet Your Neighbors dinners are a facet of the unique vision of our friend Adina Licthman, founder of Knock Knock Give a Sock, an organization dedicated to collecting socks for those in need and committed to ending the stigma surrounding homelessness.

 

This dinner will be held in memory of Henry Zilberman ז"ל, beloved father of Tali Zilberman. Henry tried to get to know and welcome each and every person, regardless of their circumstances; and so, this is a fitting tribute.

 

Registration includes dinner for you and for a neighbor from a local shelter.

In these tragic and scary times we stand with all those victimized by senseless hatred and fanaticism, at home, in Israel, and abroad. We pray for safety, healing, and peace.

Immediately following Musical Havdala, Rabbi Bellino will play guitar for the Kommunity Kinder. Children and their parents are invited to attend.

We are grateful to Rav David Bigman and Rav Meir Rubinstein of Yeshivat Maaleh Gilboa for their thought provoking Thursday night class on the place of Megillat Esther in our canon.

 

Torah Readers: We are looking for men who can prepare to read at Shabbat Mincha (and possibly at Shacharit during the week as well) throughout the year. A schedule of readers is being maintained. If you can commit to any dates, please contact Rabbi Bellino. We are grateful to Yosef Baruh who will read this week. The next available Mincha leining is on March 17th  (the afternoon reading is Tzav). We are looking for women to prepare aliyot for a Women’s Torah Reading  in the near future. Rabbi Bellino is happy to help anyone learn how to read Torah to prepare a reading.

 

Please continue to assist our weekday morning Minyan. Consider increasing your commitment to community and synagogue by attending.

 

Our plentiful and delicious Kiddushes on Sixth Street greatly enhance our synagogue and community.

Taanit Esther, February 28 - The fast begins at 5:11 AM and generally concludes at 6:16 PM. Of course, the force of law is (barely) Rabbinic, so the fast may be broken at Sunset (5:46 PM) should you experience discomfort. We will daven Mincha together at 5:20 PM.
 

February 28th - Megillah/Purim Party: Maariv will begin at 6:30 PM, with Megilla shortly thereafter.

The party will end at some point before morning services. We will return on Thursday morning for Shacharit at 7:30 AM, with Megilla at 8:00 AM

Purim Chaos Volunteers: Purim is NEXT week and t
here's a lot of schlepping, decorating, supervising, drink mixing, and cleaning to be done. We are also in need of bar, beer, and snack sponsors (To be a sponsor of the Purim chaos, please go to the donate page and select the charge type 'Purim Chaos').

Matanot LaEvyonim: Gifts to the poor is arguably the most important Mitzvah of Purim. In addition to his usual gifting, Rabbi Bellino will partner with Rabbi Zvi Romm of the Bialystoker Synagogue, Rabbi Joe Wolfson of JLIC-NYU and the NYU community, and the Masbia Soup Kitchen Network, in providing gifts to those in the region who truly need our assistance.

Through dinner, song, and conversation, we will enjoy the unique opportunity to meet our neighbors!

 

Meet Your Neighbors dinners are a facet of the unique vision of our friend Adina Licthman, founder of Knock Knock Give a Sock, an organization dedicated to collecting socks for those in need and committed to ending the stigma surrounding homelessness.

 

This dinner will be held in memory of Henry Zilberman ז"ל, beloved father of Tali Zilberman. Henry tried to get to know and welcome each and every person, regardless of their circumstances; and so, this is a fitting tribute.

 

Registration includes dinner for you and for a neighbor from a local shelter.
