We are on Summer Schedule, with Friday Mincha and Kabbalat Shabbat held at 7:00 PM (This will continue until September 20th!). Please join us as we enjoy beautiful davening, thoughtful Torah study, and our wonderful community.

Tot Shabbat Returns THIS Shabbat - Children and their parents are invited to a special Yom Ha'atzmaut celebration for Tot Shabbat!  Join us for Israel-themed songs, games, and lesson. Open play starts in the Beit Medrash at 10 AM, followed by the formal Tot Shabbat program promptly at 10:45 AM. We are grateful to Julia Moshkin Salant and Leat Klingman for making this week's program special.

Rabbi Bellino's class in Avot continues this Shabbat at 6:30 PM. The class will focus on the plain-sense meaning of the text, utilizing academic and traditional approaches, but will also focus on the the classic commentary of Rabbi Ovadiah Bartenura.

All Shabbat services are held in our main sanctuary



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. 


Annual Membership Meeting: All members in good standing are invited to attend the annual meeting of our membership, which will take place on Tuesday, May 28, 2019. We will send out more information about the meeting shortly, including ballots and proxies for those unable to attend. 

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.

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 Choni Bellino who will read this week. We are also 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 June 8th (Shabbat Bamidbar).
