The TEN: An Alternative Shavuot Experience Featuring Joshua Malina

Sixth and I Historic Synagogue
Tuesday, June 7, 2016
6:45 PM — 9:00 PM
600 I Street Northwest
Washington, DC 20001 United States

Featuring Joshua Malina

Did you vote Jed Bartlet for President? Are all your meetings a walk and talk? Then Sixth & I is your place to be for The TEN – our innovative take on the Jewish holiday of Shavuot, traditionally celebrated by studying Torah and enjoying the first fruits of the harvest.

The West Wing and Scandal’s Joshua Malina is a remarkably good Jewish boy. He’ll share his perspective on how to make it in Hollywood and still be a mensch, and he’ll talk Torah, the upcoming election, his new podcast, and Jewish ethics with Rabbi Shira.

Malina is best known for his role playing Will Bailey on The West Wing, the heady, witty White House Communications Director. Recently he launched a podcast, The West Wing Weekly, an episode-by-episode discussion of one of television’s most beloved shows with co-host Hrishikesh Hirway. A product of Jewish day school and Yale University, Malina is also well known for his roles inSport’s NightIn Plain Sight, and The American President.

Following the conversation, join us for a pre-Shavuot festival with babka ice cream sandwiches, a discussion about the Jewishness ofThe West Wing, DIY Shavuot kits, and more. Babka ice cream sandwiches truly make this a Jewish a Food Experience!

Mrs. Landingham would certainly approve.
