Under Esther’s leadership Sixth & I created world class programming from book talks with renowned authors to a wide range of musical performances.  Reinvented as a Jewish institution after being a church for 50 years, Sixth & I includes all Jewish denominations studying and observing Jewish holidays under the same roof. Sixth & I has been nationally recognized as    “a new paradigm for Jewish life.” Esther has been personally recognized as one of “The Forward 50” Jewish leaders in the country and last year was named by Washingtonian magazine as one of the most powerful women in Washington, DC.
