Services and classes at Sixth Street Community Synagogue remain suspended. Thank you for partnering with us as we continue to diligently follow the advice of our medical professionals and the laws of our officials, and as we demonstrate to God that we value life above all. Thank you for your longing to return, your appreciation, your patience, and your understanding. We will continue to update you.


Despite our social distancing efforts, it is our intention to replicate as much of the Sixth Street experience as possible.  It is very important that we look after one another and continue to maintain - and even build - our community, remotely. This means calling each other, reaching out on social media, and making sure that our friends and neighbors are adequately supported. Please email us if you need any contact information or if you can think of anyone that might require attention.

With a new fiscal year beginning on June 1st, it is once again time for us to encourage membership, asking you to formalize and renew your annual commitments to our synagogue. Despite our now eleven week hiatus, this has been a year of significant growth, 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 174 year old building. 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 our impressive revitalization? There are, of course, various membership options and we hope that one works for you.
