Open play time will begin at 10:00 AM, and the structured program will begin promptly at 10:45 AM. The Kinder will make Kiddush before joining the congregation upstairs for Adon Olam.

We wish a Mazel Tov to Aliyah & Michael Gluckstadt on the birth, Brit, and naming of their son, Jonah Henry (יונה הירש).

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

Book of Remembrance 5779

Aug24

  

 


The High Holy Day season is a time of repentance and atonement, contemplation and prayer. One of the strongest emotional moments that we experience this period, and especially on Yom Kippur, is the recalling of the memory of those loved ones who have meant so much to us and have gone on to eternal life.

To enhance the Yizkor Service, our synagogue will again assemble our own Book of Remembrance. This is an opportunity for us all to remember those people (relatives, friends, teachers, etc.) who greatly impacted our lives. To view last year's book, click here.

 

The booklet will contain:

1. The complete Yizkor Service and assorted readings and psalms
2. Your sponsored pages, half-pages, quarter pages and/or entry listings of those that you chose to honor and remember
3. A message from Rabbi Bellino

 

We urge all our members and friends to take part in our Book of Remembrance.

The final date of submission for all entries must be no later than September 13, 2018.

 

Please submit (English/Hebrew) names, relation, and yahretzeit dates. For full, half and quarter page entries, please consider adding a brief statement.

FULL PAGE…………………$180
HALF PAGE…………………$ 108
QUARTER PAGE……………$ 54
LISTING (EACH ENTRY)……$ 10

If you wish to make the same dedication as last year, please let us know.


Please send all entries and any questions to info@sixthstreetsynagogue.org

We thank you in advance for your participation in this meaningful project.

Recycling: Please make sure that all bottles, cans, and tins, are placed in the blue recycling bin in the social hall. We can be fined by the city for not separating out our garbage for recycling, and your help will save our maintenance staff a lot of work, and the synagogue some money.

Membership Drive: Our 2018-2019 membership year began on June 1st, and so it is again time for us to encourage membership; to ask that you please formalize and renew your annual commitments to 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 Rabbi Bellino who will read this week. The next available Mincha leining is on July 28th (the afternoon reading is Ekev). 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 July 28th (Vaetchanan).
