This Shabbat we will convene in our beloved sanctuary BOTH on Friday night and Saturday morning. We feel that is appropriate in light of the improving conditions, increased vaccination rates, and other metrics that we follow. The Six Feet Synagogue service will run a bit quicker than usual, with reduced singing, and Anti-Social Kiddush Club  (Kiddush-To-Go). We ask that you come on time, so that we may conclude early. In addition, the sanctuary may be quite cold as we plan to have windows and doors open to increase ventilation in the building. Please click here for our updated set of Practices & Community Expectations.

 

Friday Night Kiddush-to-Go has been sponsored by Shelly & Elly Yudewitz in celebration of Friday Nights on Sixth Street. All of 'em.

 

Shabbat Morning Kiddush-to-Go has been sponsored by Phoebe & Richard McBee in celebration of the birth and naming of their granddaughter, Isadora ("Izzy"), born to Julia McBee & Matthew Hertzberg.

 

Our Shabbodka Supply has been enhanced by Eirit & Joe Trocki in observance of the Yahrtzeit of Joe's father, נח בן יוסף.
