"Judaism has never been solely a religion to me. It’s a people, a culture, and a religion, kind of like a state of being. It helps me locate myself in the world."
Shabes Hootenanny: A Musical Shabes
SHABBES – SHABBOS – SHABBAT – SHABES AT BWC
Call it what you will, it’s a very good way to spend a Friday night!
*Please note the different schedule this month!*
This month, members of our Young Adult Committee are hosting Shabes. All are welcome! Bring instruments or your voice to contribute, and come celebrate Shabes with us.
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 ritual will start at 6:45 PM, followed by a potluck dinner around 7 PM, and jamming at 7:30 PM. Come for the ritual, the potluck, the jams or all three!
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.
