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 are grateful to Choni Bellino who will read the second half of his Bar Mitzva Parsha this Shabbat. 

Purim is in 2 Weeks! Join us on March 20th, with Megillah Reading (at 7:30 PM), immediately followed by our Purim Party. We on Sixth Street do Purim really well, but to do so requires planning. Please consider helping us with our Purim Chaos, as well as participating in our Purim Charity Campaign.

Purim Chaos: Our yearly Purim chaos would not be anywhere near as chaotic, were it not for your generous financial support. As literally all the Seforim say, "silly swag, red solo cups, and laser lights don't pay for themselves." For more information, please click to our Purim Chaos page.

Purim Charity Campaign: Matanot L'evyonim is arguably the most important Mitzvah of Purim. This year, we are again proud to 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, as well as Knock Knock Give a Sock, in providing gifts to those in the region who truly need our assistance.

2018 Tax Letter: You may have received a tax letter from us listing all of your 2018 tax-deductible contributions to the synagogue. If you have any questions about the statement, or feel that some contributions were not listed, please contact us at 212-473-3665, or email us.


Sixth Street Parents Committee: Our Sixth Street parents committee is planning a number of events for our youngest members and the larger community, and we want you to know about them! The Sixth Street Parents Google group is where events are publicized, meetings are called, and babysitters' contacts are shared. If you'd like to be added to the group, please email Jeremy.

 

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 Jeremy Newberger who will read for us this Shabbat. The next available Mincha leining is on March 16th (the afternoon reading is Tzav). 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 16th (Shabbat Vayikra).

Events
 


January 9 - Lecture: Robert Moses, Jane Jacobs and the Struggle for Lower Manhattan
Jane Jacobs called it a ballet. Neighborhoods had density. Buildings had character. Streets had eyes. But by the 1960’s, led by Robert Moses, the ballet of the city came to a grinding halt, replaced by the superblock, the highrise, and the highway. The wrecking ball sealed the fate of neighborhoods.  What were its implications on NY Jewish life in the 20th century and how did decisions made then still impact us today? Join us on January 9th at 7:00 PM for a conversation lead by professor, author and real estate expert, Jason Haber.

Dear Friends,

I know these emails are the worst, so here's the short version... If you are able to extend your end-of-year generosity to include our unique synagogue, please do so now.

Your generosity would go a long way in sustaining our unique brand of kind, thoughtful, and "extra" Orthodox Judaism. By "kind" I mean our welcoming atmosphere, our spirit (and demand) of inclusion, as well as our numerous charitable efforts and support. With "thoughtful," I refer to our academic style classes and sermons, our beautiful art, our wonderful children's programming, as well as our carefully curated visiting scholars. Finally, by "extra" I mean our renewal of our 175 year old building, our patently unique endless swag, our hilarious internet presence, our delcious Friday Night Kiddushes, our glowstick guitar havdalahs, and everything else that makes our synagogue like no other.

To make a contribution, please go the synagogue’s donation page. This is also the appropriate time to honor your open commitments to the synagogue and to pay any outstanding balances. Please remember that in order to maximize your 2018 tax benefits, contributions and payments must be made no later than 11:59 PM.


Thank you for your generous support and commitment.

To even more "Extra Orthodoxy" in 2019,
Gavriel Z. Bellino
Rabbi

How much to give is certainly up to you, and any donation is appreciated. To give you some context: If 200 families/individuals were to give $180, this year's fundraising effort would be over. To make a payment, please do so here, or send in a check to the office. If you send a check, be sure to specify that this donation is for the Eruv.

Sixth Street Parents Committee: Our Sixth Street parents committee is planning a number of events for our youngest members and the larger community, and we want you to know about them!

As part of the Drisha Winter Week of Learning, there will be a Mincha minyan at 1:15 PM on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday.

Henry Shelly Shapiro is at Riverside Premier Rehabilitation and Healing Center on the Upper West Side for an indefinite stay. Any visitor from the Sixth Street Synagogue would brighten his day with a short visit next time you're uptown.The Riverside Center is located at 150 Riverside Drive (at 87th Street).

 

The Downtown Community's yearly financial Eruv obligation is $36K. These funds are raised by several synagogues and institutions, as well by many individuals and families that make use of the Eruv. How much to give is certainly up to you, and any donation is appreciated. To give you some context: If 200 families/individuals were to give $180, this year's fundraising effort would be over. To make a payment, please do so here, or send in a check to the office. If you send a check, be sure to specify that this donation is for the Eruv.

Sixth Street Parents Committee: Our Sixth Street parents committee is planning a number of events for our youngest members and the larger community, and we want you to know about them! The Sixth Street Parents Google group is where events are publicized, meetings are called, and babysitters' contacts are shared. If you'd like to be added to the group, please email Jeremy.

 

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 Neil Kitainik who will read this week. The next available Mincha leining is on December 29th (the afternoon reading is Vaera). 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 Shabbat Shemot, December 29th.
 



Events
 


January 9 - Lecture: Robert Moses, Jane Jacobs and the Struggle for Lower Manhattan
Jane Jacobs called it a ballet. Neighborhoods had density. Buildings had character. Streets had eyes. But by the 1960’s, led by Robert Moses, the ballet of the city came to a grinding halt, replaced by the superblock, the highrise, and the highway. The wrecking ball sealed the fate of neighborhoods.  What were its implications on NY Jewish life in the 20th century and how did decisions made then still impact us today? Join us on January 9th at 7:00 PM for a conversation lead by professor, author and real estate expert, Jason Haber.

February 2nd - CholentFest VI: Challenge last year's winner of the SSCS CholentFest Eydel Ladle to claim the ladle and the respect of your peers. Come taste all the deliciouscholents at Kiddush on February 2nd.
