The Star of David has six points, and it’s that sixth one that differentiates it from a regular five-pointed star. So our name is symbolic of that which differentiates us as Jews from other groups of people.
Also, Atlanta already had Five Points…
We noticed that there are a lot of young Jews in Atlanta who are pretty disconnected from the Jewish community. We felt like there was something missing, so we just wanted to help fill in the gaps.
We want to get to know you so that we can understand what is important to you and what you’re all about. The better we know our people, the better we can build this community around our collective wants and needs.
Our age range is roughly mid-20s to early-40s, but we don’t check IDs at the door While we don’t love the term “young professionals,” we haven’t come up with anything better yet. (Please let us know if you do!) All of our events are geared toward young Jewish adults, regardless of relationship status.
Nope! Anyone who is interested (and respectful) is welcome- no questions asked.
All over the place. Literally. We recognize that Atlanta is very spread out, and so are Atlantans. We do our best to scatter our events around the metro area. While we can’t protect you from the traffic, we’ll try not to make you drive across town every time.
We usually have events once or twice a month- in the evening or on weekends. Check out our online calendar to see what’s coming up next.
The Sixth Point is non-denominational. In other words, we are not affiliated with a movement (i.e. Reform, Conservative, Orthodox, etc.). We’re just Jewish. There’s more than one way to be Jewish, and we certainly aren’t going to tell you how to do it. Our personal traditions and customs vary widely; that’s the beauty of diversity. Many of our events focus on culture and spirituality (and food- we love food!). It’s up to YOU to decide how to weave Judaism into your own life.
Good question. During our first two years, we experimented with a few “family-friendly” events, and we learned that families are not our target audience. Our mission is to engage young adults, so we no longer offer events that are appropriate for kids.
