Tot Shabbat continues THIS Shabbat in the Beit Midrash from 10:15-11:00 and is followed by the Kommunity Kinder Kiddush Klub. Our program aims to inspire and entertain children ages zero to six. Expect Shabbat songs, games, and all the cuteness.







Kid's Pre-Purim Party - There will be a party for the Kommunity Kinder on Sunday, March 5th at 10:30 AM. Register here.


Purim begins this Monday, March 6th. We plan to gather that night for Maariv at 6:15 PM and then read the Megillah at 6:30 PM. Following the Megillah there will be a celebration in our Social Hall.


On Tuesday AM we will convene an 8:00 AM Shacharit which will be followed by the Megillah at 8:30 AM.


Sponsorship - The Committee for Purim Chaos is actively plotting various chaotic activities that require some financial support as well as assistance in setting up. For more information and/or to sponsor something, please click to our Purim Chaos page.


Purim Charity - Matanot L'Evyonim (gifts to the poor) is arguably the most important mitzvah of Purim. In the course of our own joy, we make it our duty to share with others, thus amplifying the spirit of unity that we read about in the Megillah, and extending the divine generosity shown to our people. In the spirit of modern Religious Humanism, we extend this kindness to both our Jewish and non-Jewish neighbors. This Purim we will again partner with Rabbi Zvi Romm, the Masbia Soup Kitchen Network, and Knock Knock Give a Sock, in providing gifts to those in our neighborhood who truly need our assistance. You may make a donation here or Venmo us @sixthstreetsynagogue (be sure to specify Purim Charity!). Of course you may also bring in a check (made out to Sixth Street Community Synagogue Rabbi's Discretionary) or cash before or on Purim.
