Shabes Gathering: Racial & Economic Justice

1762 Beacon St. Brookline, MA 02445

Join us for our January community Shabes Ritual & Potluck! The theme of our Shabes this month is racial and economic justice. Shabes gatherings include conversation, ritual blessings, inspiring texts, singing, and potluck dinners. This is a time for reflection, restoration, and spirituality.

Thanks to BWC Teens Acting for Social Change & BWC's Acting For Racial & Economic Justice Committee for hosting this gathering! All are welcome to join us! 

Please note that our schedule is a bit different this month to accommodate families!

  • 6:30 PM Arrive and Schmooze
  • 7:00 PM Blessings and Potluck Dinner
  • 7:30 PM Shabes Ritual and Program 

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.
