We are on Summer Schedule, with Friday Mincha and Kabbalat Shabbat held at 7:00 PM (This will continue until September 14th!).


Please join us this Shabbat and enjoy a beautiful davening, thoughtful Torah study, and a wonderful community.


In these tragic and scary times we stand with all those victimized by senseless hatred and fanaticism, at home, in Israel, and abroad. We pray for safety, healing, and peace.

We wish a Mazal Tov to Alexia & Harris Marks on the birth, Brit, and naming of their son Micah Shiloh.


Our Tot Shabbat program last Shabbat was fun, engaging, and joyful, and we thank all the children who participated and brought their parents with them. We are especially grateful to Annie & Jeremy Watman for all their work in arranging the program.

NEXT WEEK: Torah Study with Rosh Kehilah Michal Kohane -  On Tuesday, July 10th, at 7:00 PM, we welcome Michal Kohane, the Rosh Kehila of the Prospect Heights Shul in Brooklyn, and a student at Yeshivat Maharat. Weaving together a story from the Talmud, a poem by Yehuda Amichai, and a Chasidic idea, she will help us look at and rethink the relationships between "Jerusalem" and "Babylon", as they were almost 2000 years ago, and today.  For more details and to register, please click here.

Membership Drive: Our 2018-2019 membership year began on June 1st, and so it is again time for us to encourage membership; to ask that you please formalize and renew your annual commitments to our synagogue

Torah Readers: We are looking for men who can prepare to read at Shabbat Mincha (and possibly at Shacharit during the week as well) throughout the year. A schedule of readers is being maintained. If you can commit to any dates, please contact Rabbi Bellino. We are grateful to Elie Yudewitz who will read this week. The next available Mincha leining is on July 21st (the afternoon reading is Vaetchanan). We are looking for women to prepare aliyot for a Women’s Torah Reading  in the near future. Rabbi Bellino is happy to help anyone learn how to prepare a reading.

Please continue to assist our weekday morning Minyan. Consider increasing your commitment to community and synagogue by attending.

Our plentiful and delicious Kiddushes on Sixth Street greatly enhance our synagogue and community. To sponsor or to co-sponsor a Friday night Kiddush, a Shabbat Kiddush, a Shabbocktail, our Shabbat Shabeer supply, or a Seudah Shelishit, contact Rabbi Bellino. The next available Shabbat Kiddush for sponsorship is July 14th (Matot-Masei).
