Purim is Tonight!

03/09/2020 01:54:55 PM


Purim is Tonight! Please do not attend services on Purim, if you are under quarantine, presenting symptoms, or if you are immunocompromised. You are strongly encouraged to fulfill your obligation by watching our live broadcast on our Facebook page (Note, you will not need to sign in to watch. Listening over the phone works as well). The Megillah on Purim is a Rabbinic obligation binding upon all adult Jews; nevertheless, this year, it is appropriate to apply some flexibility in its implementation.

  • Purim Night (March 9) - Maariv/Megillah Reading at 7:00 PM. 
  • Purim Day (March 10) - Shacharit on Tuesday morning will be at 7:30 AM followed by Megillah at 8:00 AM.
  • Purim Charity: Matanot L'evyonim is arguably the most important Mitzvah of Purim. This year, we are again proud to partner with Rabbi Zvi Romm of the Bialystoker Synagogue, Rabbi Joe Wolfson of JLIC-NYU and the NYU community, the Masbia Soup Kitchen Network, as well as Knock Knock Give a Sock, in providing gifts to those in the region who truly need our assistance. To make a donation click here. You may also 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.

We are grateful to our Purim sponsors: Dina Benzaquen & Kenny Canfield​​​​​​, Suzanne Dance & Andrew Obin, Zachary Dukoff, Sarah Fels, Rafi Friedman, Kenneth Grumer​​​​​​​, Agita Jaber & Jonathan Falik​​​​​​​Michael MitznerCori Robinson, PLLC, the Rosenfeld Family, Shelly & Elie Yudewitz​​​​​​​, the University of Purim, and several anonymous donors.​​​​
