What is Sixth & I?
Sixth & I is a non-profit center for arts, entertainment, and ideas and a synagogue that reimagines how religion and community can enhance people’s everyday lives. Housed within a revitalized historic space dating back to 1908 in the heart of the Nation’s Capital, our unexpected mix of cultural and spiritual programs embraces the multi-faceted identities of those we serve and offers wide-ranging, eye-opening, and accessible experiences to inspire more meaningful and fulfilling lives.
Our Jewish Life programming—including education, Shabbat services, holiday celebrations, social events, community-building cohorts, and social justice work—offers dynamic ways for those primarily in their 20s and 30s to engage with Jewish values, ideas, and traditions on their own terms and without judgment. As a multi-denominational, non-membership, and radically welcoming spiritual home, Sixth & I works to foster community among people at a similar stage of life, figuring out what matters to them and who they want to be. Unlike a traditional synagogue, the role we play in people’s lives is both temporary—in that we serve them at one phase of their lives, as they’re commonly shaping their post-college and pre-parenthood identities—and also long-lasting in that we plant seeds for living Jewishly and in community in ways that we hope will stick with them long after their time at Sixth & I.
