At this alternative Shabbat experience, mindfulness teacher Alison Cohen and a Sixth & I rabbi lead guided meditation, song, and reflection on Jewish teachings designed to help you renew your connection to yourself and others.
Friday Night Services
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.
On the fourth Friday of each month, while our Jewish Life team celebrates Shabbat independently, we encourage you to lead your own Shabbat at home using our music library.
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:
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.
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.
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.
