Home to a Conservative synagogue, an African Methodist Episcopal church and, now, what author Junot Díaz calls “a utopian model” for what a modern community center can be, Sixth & I Historic Synagogue has a rich history. Since 2004, it has redefined the concept of the community gathering space with entertaining and thought-provoking programs spanning Jewish and other cultural traditions, while also playing host to an array of authors, musicians, politicians, comedians, filmmakers, journalists, actors, and chefs. Former Vice-President Al Gore, author Malcolm Gladwell, tech exec and author Sheryl Sandberg, comedian Lewis Black, actress Idina Menzel: the list goes on. While Sixth & I welcomes all ages and backgrounds, its focus is on building a community of young professionals who share an interest in the arts and humanities. In 2015 alone, over 45,000 people attended over 120 author events, concerts, comedy shows, and exhibits. Located in the heart of Penn Quarter, Sixth & I buzzes with energy, and preserves the past while it enlivens the future. The beat goes on ... with your support, please.
