Please help out our daily minyan during Chol HaMoed.


See the shul calendar for davening times during the week
and schedule of events.




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 Dr. Ashira Lubkin & Alan Feder on the birth and naming of their daughter, Sarit Aviva.

We wish a Mazal Tov to Annie & Jeremy Watman on the birth this week of a boy.

We are saddened by the loss of our long-time congregant Henry Shelly Shapiro this past week. Shelly was buried in Beit Shemesh, next to his sister.


We wish a very happy 80th birthday to our friend Dr. Elliot Levitch.


We are grateful to Annie & Jeremy Watman as well as to Rabbi Bellino for last Sunday's Kids's Pesach Prep and Matzah Bake.


Passover Charity: In keeping with the spirit of empathy that Passover engenders, we prepare for Passover by assisting others in their preparation. This year, Rabbi Bellino will disburse charity funds to those living in downtown who require assistance and will also support the important efforts of the Masbia Soup Kitchen NetworkYou may make a donation here, or Venmo us @sixthstreetsynagogue (be sure to specify Passover Charity!). Of course, you may also bring in a check (made out to Sixth Street Community Synagogue Rabbi's Discretionary), or cash before Passover.

Sell Your Chametz: You can still sell your Chametz with Rabbi Bellino until 9:00 AM Friday morning. Please do so here. Do not pay him. Support his charitable efforts (see above).

Sixth Street Parents Committee: Our Sixth Street parents committee is planning a number of events for our youngest members and the larger community, and we want you to know about them! The Sixth Street Parents Google group is where events are publicized, meetings are called, and babysitters' contacts are shared. If you'd like to be added to the group, please email Jeremy.

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 May 25th (Shabbat Behar).
