Dear Members and Friends,

Now that we're past Tisha b’Av, we must turn our attention to the High Holy Days, which start this year on September 29th, in less than seven weeks.

We anticipate a record number of people attending this year, so please reserve your seats as soon as possible. We will make every effort to preserve your customary seats.

Family membership includes two free seats. Individual membership includes one free seat. Additional seats for members are $125 and all seats for non-members are $250.

Level Dues
Family $1000
Individual $550
Associate $300
Student $150

We are grateful to the many of you who have already paid your membership dues. To make a payment, please go to the Membership Renewal page on our website, or send a check to the synagogue office. If you are joining us for the first time as a member, please go to our Become a Member page.

To discuss membership or any special seating needs that you may have, please call the office (212-473-3665) or e-mail us at info@sixthstreetsynagogue.org. We plan to provide childcare, so please indicate how many children and on which days they will be joining us.

We wish you all a Ketiva v'Chatima Tova and a happy, healthy, and peaceful New Year.

Sincerely,

Elie Yudewitz & Jack Lebewohl

FILM DESCRIPTION
 

When the Smoke Clears: A Story of Brotherhood, Resilience and Hope tells the true stories of young Israeli soldiers whose injuries leave them fighting for the strength to live. Making breakthroughs and finding meaning by reaching out to those in need, they discover that what didn’t kill them really did make them stronger.

The film shares the accounts of Gil, Ofer, and Elad – young war veterans whose unthinkable battle experiences leave them with life-altering mental and physical scars. Returning to society, their trauma disconnects them from all they once valued, turning their lives upside down.

When all seems lost, a revolutionary idea gives them the hope, courage, tools and community to survive, and to embrace their identities as heroes both on and off the battlefield. Banding together in a family of wounded soldiers, they learn to face their obstacles together and discover that in conquering their pain, they might have more to offer than ever before.

When the Smoke Clears follows this band of brothers during the darkest times of their lives, and proves that massive growth and healing can come through giving to others, transforming them into heroes in their own lives and in the lives of those around them.

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.


This past Sunday, we had the honor of hosting the Drisha Institute for Jewish Education for a day of Shiva Asar B'Tamuz programming. We are grateful to Rabbi David Silber and Rabbi Daniel Reifman for their presentations; to Neesa Berezin-Bahr for her work in organizing the program; and to everyone who joined us and participated.
 

Gold Leaf Campaign: In honor of our synagogue's 80th anniversary this year, we encourage community members to sponsor Gold Leafs on the Tree of Life outside of the Main Sanctuary doors. As a nod to the synagogue's traditional history, coupled with the recent revitalization, let's take this opportunity to commemorate the many happy events and milestones celebrated in our synagogue, such as Graduations, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, Marriages, Birth of Children, or any other momentous event. Each leaf can have up to 4 lines. The cost for each leaf is $118. Please submit payments and text by August 30th so the plaques can be finalized before Rosh Hashanah. Submit text and payment on the donate page (use the charge type 'Gold Leaf Campaign'), and email Annie Watman a copy of your text (Annie.watman@gmail.com). Please join us in this campaign to celebrate the revitalization of our shul and the joy celebrated within these walls. Contact Annie Watman with any questions.


Community Security: We are actively working to enhance our sense of safety and security. We are grateful to Sara Liss and the larger security team for taking on this responsibility. To find out more and to become involved, please contact Sara at sarailiss@gmail.com or Jeremy Watman at jeremy.watman@gmail.com.

Dear friends,

Our new fiscal year began on June 1st, and so we once again encourage your membership - to ask that you formalize and renew your annual commitments to our synagogue.

This year, with increased operating costs, including security, we are forced to raise the membership dues for the coming year. If you renew your membership though by this Sunday, June 30th, you can still pay at last year's rate.

We continue to experience a growing community, delicious kiddushes, meaningful services, insightful classes, festive parties, engaging children’s programming, and respected and inspiring speakers. We continue to make essential repairs and aesthetic improvements to our 173 year old building. We are most grateful to the many of you who have stepped up to join our leadership, attend our services, contribute financially, strengthen our community through your presence, and make our synagogue a true center of thoughtful Orthodox Judaism.

Membership dues go a long way in making all of this possible. Won’t you please share in our great legacy and help us continue this impressive revitalization? There are, of course, various membership options and we hope that one works for you.

  • If you have recently paid membership, please ignore this request. If you - for whatever reason - generally pay membership at another time of the year, you may continue to do so, or you may pay now and preserve the old rate.

Thank you for being a part of our great success,

Elie Yudewitz, President

THIS SHABBAT: Community Security Presentation/Father's Day Kiddush

06/14/2019 12:23:23 PM

Jun14

This Shabbat, June 15th, our synagogue community will welcome our security consultant, Amit Bigelman of Bigos Security Solutions. After services and before our Father's Day kiddush, Amit will address the entire congregation. He will present a pragmatic, sensible Emergency Action Plan (EAP) to better prepare us in case of emergency. This EAP will guide the various elements of our bustling synagogue and coordinate the activity of our newly-formed Security Team and our various staff. It is therefore critical that our active community members make every effort to attend and internalize Amit's address.

Additionally, Tot Shabbat will be held that morning as well. Before Tot Shabbat begins at 10:45 AM, Amit will meet with the parents and with the Tot Shabbat leader to brief them on the EAP as it relates specifically to the children.

Please make every effort to attend this important event.

For more information, please contact Jeremy Watman at jeremy.watman@gmail.com. More information about Amit Bigelman can be found here.
 




This Shabbat is our Seventh Annual Father's Day Kiddush!!!

There's still time to be a sponsor! For $54 you can be named as a contributor. The names of your sons, fathers, grandfathers, teachers, or virtually anyone you choose, will be listed. Please specify "in honor of" or "in memory of" in the notes when you make your payment.

Tot Shabbat meets this Shabbat, June 15th, and next week, June 22nd. This week, before Tot Shabbat begins at 10:45 AM, our security consultant Amit Bigelman (see above) will meet with the parents and Leat to brief us on the Emergency Action Plan (EAP) as it relates specifically to the children. Since so many of us stay with the children during the program and otherwise supervise downstairs, it’s important that parents have a strong understanding of the EAP. Please make every effort to be there by 10:30 AM so Amit can brief us all. As always, 10:00 AM free play, 10:45 AM program starts.

This Shabbat, June 15th, marks the 115th anniversary of the General Slocum disaster, in which an estimated 1,200 people drowned after their ship caught fire and sank in the East River. The victims were mostly women and children from the St. Mark's Evangelical Lutheran Church, the congregation which worshipped in the building that is now home to our synagogue. This was the worst disaster in New York City history before 9/11.

Dear friends,

With a new fiscal year having begun on June 1st, it is once again time for us to encourage membership - to ask that you formalize and renew your annual commitments to our synagogue.

We continue to experience a growing community, delicious kiddushes, meaningful services, insightful classes, festive parties, engaging children’s programming, and respected and inspiring speakers. We continue to make essential repairs and aesthetic improvements to our 173 year old building. We are most grateful to the many of you who have stepped up to join our leadership, attend our services, contribute financially, strengthen our community through your presence, and make our synagogue a true center of thoughtful Orthodox Judaism.

Membership dues go a long way in making all of this possible. Won’t you please share in our great legacy and help us continue this impressive revitalization? There are, of course, various membership options and we hope that one works for you.

With increased operating costs, including security, we are forced to raise the membership dues for the coming year. If you renew your membership though before June 30th, you can still pay at last year's rate.

Membership Level Before June 30 After June 30
Family (Includes 2 RH/YK Tickets) $900 $1000
Individual (Includes 1 RH/YK Ticket) $500 $550
Associate  $300 $300
Student $150 $150
  • For Membership Renewal, please click here
  • For New Members, please click here

You can also Venmo us @sixthstreetsynagogue, or mail a check to 325 East 6th Street, New York, NY 10003.

  • Should you prefer, membership payments may be made in installments. You can easily arrange this through our website or with the help of our office.
  • If you have recently paid membership, please ignore this request. If you - for whatever reason - generally pay membership at another time of the year, you may continue to do so, or you may pay now and preserve the old rate.
  • If you are having financial difficulty meeting the membership dues obligations, please contact our Rabbi or Treasurer to discuss alternate financial arrangements. All conversations will be kept completely confidential.


Thank you for being a part of our great success,

Elie Yudewitz, President
Alan Schwartz, Treasurer
Gavriel Bellino, Rabbi

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.

Annual Meeting/Membership Drive 2019

05/15/2019 04:08:54 PM

May15

Dear friends,

We invite all members in good standing to attend our annual membership meeting and election of officers, which will be held in the synagogue on Tuesday, May 28th, 2019.

With a new fiscal year beginning (June 1st), it is now once again time for us to encourage membership - to ask that you formalize and renew your annual commitments to our synagogue.

We continue to experience a growing community, delicious kiddushes, meaningful services, insightful classes, festive parties, engaging children’s programming, and respected and inspiring speakers. We continue to make essential repairs and aesthetic improvements to our 173 year old building. We are most grateful to the many of you who have stepped up to join our leadership, attend our services, contribute financially, strengthen our community through your presence, and make our synagogue a true center of thoughtful Orthodox Judaism.

Membership dues go a long way in making all of this possible. Won’t you please share in our great legacy and help us continue this impressive revitalization? There are, of course, various membership options and we hope that one works for you.

With increased operating costs, including security, we are forced to raise the membership dues for the coming year. If you renew your membership though before June 30th, you can still pay at last year's rate.

Membership Level Before June 30 After June 30
Family (Includes 2 RH/YK Tickets) $900 $1000
Individual (Includes 1 RH/YK Ticket) $500 $550
Associate  $300 $300
Student $150 $150
  • For Membership Renewal, please click here
  • For New Members, please click here

You can also Venmo us @sixthstreetsynagogue, or mail a check to 325 East 6th Street, New York, NY 10003.

  • Should you prefer, membership payments may be made in installments. You can easily arrange this through our website or with the help of our office.
  • If you have recently paid membership, please ignore this request. If you - for whatever reason - generally pay membership at another time of the year, you may continue to do so, or you may pay now and preserve the old rate.
  • If you are having financial difficulty meeting the membership dues obligations, please contact our Rabbi or Treasurer to discuss alternate financial arrangements. All conversations will be kept completely confidential.


Thank you for being a part of our great success,

Elie Yudewitz, President
Alan Schwartz, Treasurer
Gavriel Bellino, Rabbi
