Shabes Gathering: An Evening of Building Community for Muslims & Jews

1762 Beacon St. Brookline, MA 02445
Join us for a Shabes dinner and gathering: "Building Community for Muslims and Jews: Sharing Stories of Strength, Hope and Resistance" hosted by the BWC Jewish Muslim Solidarity Committee. We will be joined by guests from our Muslim partner organizations, and the evening will provide an opportunity to socialize, get a glimpse into each other's lives, and share stories of strength, hope and resistance.

The evening will start at 6:15 PM with time to settle in and shmooze. A shabes ceremony will start at 6:45 PM, followed by a potluck dinner at about 7:30 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.
