WHO WE ARE
The Sixth Point is an independent, non-denominational community for Jewish young adults in Atlanta. Founded in 2013, we serve as a gateway to Jewish connection for people in their 20s and 30s (ish). We organize social, cultural, and spiritual events that bring young Jews together to make new friends and create lasting memories.
Between graduating from college and having young children, many of us do not feel compelled to join a synagogue or become members of a JCC. But that does not mean we don’t want to be Jewish! The Sixth Point can bridge the gap in Jewish connection during our 20s and 30s.
Judaism is not “one size fits all" – nor should it be! There is more than one way to be Jewish, and it’s up to each of us to decide what is right for us. The Sixth Point is here to help you find your way. We want Judaism to be comfortable for everyone.
We don’t have a physical space, so we host gatherings around Atlanta, in different parts of the city each time. Our gatherings are just that – opportunities to gather with other Jewish young adults, just for the sake of being together. No hidden agenda. No ulterior motive. Just Jews doing Jewish with other Jews.
If you are not looking to meet new people, then The Sixth Point is not for you. We are all about making friends and getting to know each other! Come check us out – we’ll welcome you with open arms.
WHAT WE DO
Our calendar of events is pretty diverse, and that's intentional. We know that the Jewish young adults of Atlanta have varied interests, so we try to offer a wide variety of get-togethers.
Some of our events have become traditions. Every year, we make our own hamentashen for Purim, using all the traditional fillings (apricot, raspberry, poppy) and a few outside-the-box ones too (cookie dough, caramel, marshmallow, chocolate peanut butter- just to name a few). We also make our own Chanukah candles. Don't worry, though – you don't need to be crafty, and there is no hot, dripping wax. We just roll sheets of colored beeswax! A few times a year, we get together for Shabbat dinner and game night (board games, that is). We also volunteer in the community a couple times each year. And we always have an interactive, very personal and meaningful, discussion-based alternative to services for Rosh Hashanah.
We also like to do new things! A few of our favorite past events include a murder mystery night with professional actors, a Civil Rights bus tour of key historic sites in Atlanta, summer-camp style color war (you can call it field day if you prefer), and a hands-on challah baking lesson. We once celebrated Shabbat together at Skyline Park, the old times amusement park on the rooftop of Ponce City Market.
