Join us for community Shabes Dinners! 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. Contact Jill Edelson and Marie Ariel for more information.
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.
