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 are most grateful to Jeff Katz for organizing the moving Yom HaShoah event this past Sunday evening, which featured survivor and noted speaker Marion Blumenthal Lazan, Yiddish singer Lori Leifer, as well as several members of our community, including Zipporah Polinsky-Nagel, Jeremy Watman, Sharon Lebewohl, Alan Feder, Joan Nachmani, Shira Schindel, and Dr. Ira Orgel. Please click here to see photos from the event.


We wish a Mazel Tov to Dr. Elissa Sampson Boyarin on receiving a Lower East Side Community Hero Award as part of the Lower East Side History Month celebration in New York City.


We are looking for a Youth Leader to run a Bi-weekly (every other) Shabbat morning program for children ages 2-5. This is a paid position; experience with children/education is a plus. This is a unique leadership opportunity to create, develop, and maintain a children's program through working with community leadership. Please contact sixthstreetparents@gmail.com if you are interested.


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 Kiddush for sponsorship is Parashat Bemidbar - 5/27.
