Call it what you will, it’s a very good way to spend a Friday night!
 
Shabes gatherings include conversation, ritual blessings, inspiring texts, singing, and potluck dinners. This is a time for reflection, restoration, and spirituality. The evening will start at 6:30 PM with time to settle in and shmooze. A Shabes ceremony will start at 7 PM followed by a potluck dinner at about 7:45 PM. Come for the ceremony or the potluck dinner or both.
 
So what’s funny about Shabes?
On Friday, October 16 the theme for the evening will be Jewish humor.
