Shabes Gathering

Boston Workmen's Circle 1762 Beacon Street, Brookline



Call it what you will, it’s a very good way to spend a Friday night!

Friday, April 1 at 6:30 PM

This month's hosts are Sefira Bell-Masterson and Meira Soloff, two young adult members of Boston Workmen's Circle. This month's theme, is shedding winter, welcoming spring! We hope to see you there. 

Shabes gatherings include conversation, ritual blessings, inspiring texts, singing, and potluck dinners. This is a time for reflection, restoration, and spirituality. The Shabes Committee oversees monthly programs led by different hosts who provide personalized additions to the ritual.

The evening will start at 6:30 PM with time to settle in and schmooze. A Shabes ceremony will start at 7 PM, followed by a potluck dinner around 7:45 PM. Come for the ceremony or the potluck dinner or both.

Please bring a dish to share when you join us for Shabes. No time to cook? Many of us bring takeout! We’ll provide the wine, juice, and challah.

Each monthly Shabes gathering is organized by two community members. If you are interested in organizing a future Shabes gathering, please email Jill Edelson or Marie Ariel and check out our manual on leading Shabes.
