Dear friends,

Here's the short version: I need your help to rebuild this unique synagogue. You can click here to participate in the Kol Nidrei Appeal. Then go back to hydrating.

If you need more convincing, here goes: Despite a chaotic and unpredictable year, the Sixth Street Community Synagogue is still very much a center of thoughtful and fun Modern Orthodox Judaism. It continues to thrive online and at COVID-careful services (Six-Feet Synagogue). This year has included several essential and aesthetic improvements to a 174 year old building, including critical electrical and plumbing work as well as the renovation of pews (of which there are many!). Classes are thoughtful and quirky. Davening is beautiful and efficient. Kiddush is actually delicious, and a bit of a party. So much better than the synagogue you grew up in.

But like every other institution, the synagogue requires your help to return to its pre-COVID level of functioning. The building needs more protection and care, additional professional roles must be developed, and services and events that attract a broad audience must be offered. The synagogue must - not only make up for the last year and half - it must exceed its former glory.

As you know, this project of Teshuva - the return to our higher selves and to God - requires that we re-evaluate, re-prioritize, and then re-affirm our commitment to those things that truly matter. I hope that our synagogue is on your list and that you are able to partner with me in its great revitalization and success.

I am grateful to you for your support,

Hydrate.

Gavriel Bellino, Rabbi
