He is a teacher of Jewish thought at numerous institutions throughout Israel, and shares Torah with communities throughout the United States. R. Judah founded Tzama Nafshi, an organization dedicated to fostering Jewish unity, identity, education, inspiration and participation, committed to working to connect Jews with their Heritage, and each other. Rav Judah will give a short Dvar Torah at Friday Night Kiddush, present the Shabbat Sermon, deliver the pre-Mincha class, and lead a discussion at Seudah Shelishit.

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!!!

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.

 

All Shabbat Services are held in our main sanctuary.

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 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

Annual Meeting/Membership Drive 2019

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

If you can commit to any dates, please contact Rabbi Bellino. We are grateful to Neil Kitainik who will read for us this Shabbat. The next available Mincha leining is on March 30th (the afternoon reading is Tazria). We are also 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 March 23rd (Shabbat Tzav).
