Rabbi Bellino is happy to help anyone learn how to prepare a reading.

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.

A Jewish Approach to Sexuality and Intimacy

Tuesday, June 19, 2018

8:00 PM - 9:30 PM


​​​Join the women of our community for an open discussion and learning opportunity with our downtown Yoetzet Halacha, Shiffy Friedman. We will explore the Jewish approach to sexuality, intimacy, and the Jewish ethic around consent. We will also use common questions received by Yoatzot Halacha as a framework to discuss physical and emotional challenges that arise in the most intimate area of a relationship. 

Please note that the correct start time is 8:00 PM.

This event is open to all women - married and unmarried - and will be a safe place for questions and answers. Feel free to bring your questions, or email them in advance to nycyoetzet@gmail.com, or submit them anonymously at Tinyurl.com/yoetzetQandA


The event has been sponsored by Adina & Henry Frank, in memory of Adina's mother, Bea Haims.
