Start the work day with meaning as we come together to connect and reflect. Rabbi Shira and Aaron Shneyer lead a few of the traditional morning prayers and share kavvanot (intentions).
After more than a year of lockdowns and virtual social interactions, a return to our pre-pandemic “normal” lives may feel daunting, exhilarating, and anxiety-producing all at once. As we navigate this unfamiliar terrain, Rabbi Aaron offers some Jewish wisdom to provide helpful perspectives and frameworks for an intentional re-entry.

Book Club with Kayleen Schaefer
In But You’re Still So Young, journalist Kayleen Schaefer employs data research and hundreds of interviews to reveal how today’s thirtysomethings are living their lives in ways that upend the traditional checklist of becoming an adult in American society. Hear from Schaefer, ask her questions, and spend time in breakout groups to reflect on how the book relates to your own experiences.
Start off the work day with some spiritual work as we come together to connect and reflect. Rabbi Aaron leads a few of the traditional morning prayers, shares a couple of kavvanot (intentions), and leads a short journaling exercise.
From havdallah at the end of Shabbat to the prayer we say after a meal, Judaism asks us to mark the ending with as much ceremony as we do the beginning. In Rabbi Shira’s final class at Sixth & I, share personal stories and study Jewish texts on how to say goodbye, especially when the future is uncertain. Bring tissues.
As Rabbi Shira leads her last service at Sixth & I, bid her farewell and celebrate her impact on our community at a thoughtful, accessible, and radically welcoming service set to music from Aaron Shneyer,Jeff Geld, and Sarah Fredrick.
