Sixth & I

Sinai Slam: An Alternative Shavuot Experience

May 26, 2023 • 7:00 am ET
  • This event has passed.

During our innovative take on the holiday of Shavuot, experience a night of dairy, debate, and personal discovery.

Start the night with a wine and cheese tasting led by Each Peach Market. The main event features candid, autobiographical stories from Sixth & I’ers exploring unexpected takes on Shavuot’s themes of anticipation, revelation, and conversion. Following, eat your fill of cheesecake and Jeni’s ice cream and hang out with four DC rabbis who work with Jews in their 20s and 30s. They’ll discuss and debate their most challenging Jewish texts and ideas and take your questions.

On Friday morning, greet the dawn with yoga and meditation led by Rabbi Nora and Gopi Kinnicutt, a Bhakti-infused yoga teacher who blends movement with spirituality.
