Intergenerational Shabes Gathering

6 Webster St. Brookline, MA 02446




The BWC Young Adult Community and Aging in Community Committee invite you to an Intergenerational Shabbes in the theme of Renewal. We will gather together to build community through generations and reflect together on stories of renewal: renewal of spirit through shabbes, renewal of commitment to social justice practice, renewal of hope in times of crisis, and more. There will be some short prepared presentation, interactive ritual-making, and ample time to connect with friends new and old. If you are inspired by this theme, please bring a story or poem on the topic of "renewal" to share with your table over dinner. 

Please bring a potluck dish to share and invite your friends! No time to cook? Many of us bring takeout! We’ll provide the wine, juice, and challah.

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. 

Last-minute drop-ins are very welcome. Please RSVP here to help us plan the evening’s set up.
