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.
Known for being one of the most emotionally intense months of the Hebrew calendar, Av has it all: grief, love, loss, singing, destruction, tears, dancing. Rabbi Nora leads a conversation on the ways in which our emotional spectrum is reflected in the themes of this time of year.
Blending contemporary and traditional elements, this inclusive service is designed to foster community in a thoughtful, accessible, and radically welcoming setting. Led by Rabbi Nora (for the first time at Sixth & I!) and musicians Aaron Shneyer, Sarah Fredrick, and Jeff Geld.
Book Club with Rosie Danan
In The Intimacy Experiment, the rabbi of a failing synagogue joins forces with the founder of a sex-positive startup to host a buzzy seminar about modern intimacy to attract more millennials. It seems like the perfect solution—until they discover their growing attraction to each other and must put their syllabus to the test. Hear from author Rosie Danan, ask her questions, and spend time in breakout groups to reflect on the book’s themes.
Help us welcome Rabbi Nora to Sixth & I at a virtual Q&A. As she settles into her new role on our Jewish Life team, it’s your chance to learn more about her and to ask her all your hard-hitting questions, like her favorite Jewish holiday (how can you choose just one!) or the best place to get a bagel in DC.
