Sixth & I

Sinai Slam: An Alternative Shavuot Experience

Jun 11, 2024 • 7:00 pm ET

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 Cheesemonster DC. 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 Splendid Ice Creams 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.

7:00 pm – Cheese and wine tasting led by Cheesemonster DC
8:30 pm – Sinai Slam Storytelling Event
10:00 pm – 10 commandments, 4 rabbis, 1 piece of cheesecake: Rabbi Ilana Zietman of GatherDC, Rabbi Eliana Fischel of Washington Hebrew Congregation, Rabbi Josh Beraha of Temple Micah, and Rabbi Aaron Potek will dive deep into a commandment they think is misunderstood or underappreciated. Enjoy Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream, coffee, and cheesecake.

Sixth & I strives to be an accessible and welcoming resource for the community by offering affordable experiences. The subsidized price of $36 is intended for young professionals or those with financial need and does not reflect the true cost of the experience provided ($54). If you are able, please consider covering the full cost.
