Shabbat

Sixth & I’s Shabbat services are designed to create community for people in their 20s and 30s through spiritually uplifting experiences. Be sure to register in advance, and sign up for our Sixth & Spiritual newsletter for updates. If you want to learn more about the prayers you’ll hear at services, check out our music library.

Our regular Shabbat offerings include:

Pause and Play
On the first Friday of each month, musician Aaron Shneyer leads a music-driven, laid-back, and soulful alternative Shabbat experience.

Friday Night Services
Held on the second and third Fridays, this inclusive service led by Rabbi Aaron or Rabbi Nora blends contemporary and traditional elements for an experience that feels both familiar and fresh. Uplifting music and the rabbi’s thought-provoking sermon combine for a welcoming one-hour service that’s a good fit for those new to Shabbat or those looking for space to wind down and reflect. This in-person service also streams live on our Facebook page.

Holidays

Sixth & I approaches the celebration and observance of Jewish holidays by embracing tradition and culture in ways that are resonant with and reflective of people’s modern interests. Some highlights of past holiday programs include:

Sukkot

Built by our community and around the entrance to our building, Sixth & I’s sukkah is host to social events, meals, and text study sessions.

Dancin’ in the Streets

To celebrate Simchat Torah, we close down I Street and dance (like no one’s watching) and sing with the Torah.

Purim Celebration

We bring the central themes of the holiday to life through improv games and irreverent, politically incorrect original sketches, followed by dancing and drinks at our after party.

Sinai Slam: An Alternative Shavuot Experience

This innovative take on Shavuot, the holiday traditionally celebrated by studying Torah and enjoying the first fruits of the harvest, features a night of storytelling exploring themes of anticipation, revelation, and conversion.

High Holidays

For a fresh start to the new year, we offer in-person and virtual services along with alternative programming and classes to help you connect more deeply to the holidays and their themes.
