Join us for our March community Shabes Ritual & Potluck " An Evening of Building Community for Muslims and Jews: Sharing Stories of Strength, Hope and Resistance".  Shabes gatherings include conversation, ritual blessings, inspiring texts, singing, and potluck dinners. This is a time for reflection, restoration, and spirituality.

Thanks to BWC's Jewish Muslim Solidarity Committee for hosting this gathering! All are welcome to join us! 

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.

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. Download a sample ritual program book here.

The Shabes Committee hosts Shabes gatherings throughout the year. See the full Shabes calendar here.
