Are you growing older? Do you love someone who is?   Join us November 4th for a shabes gathering hosted by the Workmen's Circle Aging in Community committee.

Shabes gatherings include conversation, ritual blessings, inspiring texts, singing, and potluck dinners. This is a time for reflection, restoration and conversation .

The November 4th Shabes will offer an opportunity to explore our own aging and how we feel about the aging of our parents and grandparents.

The evening will start at 6:30 PM with time to settle in and schmooze. A Shabes ceremony will start at 7 PM, followed by a potluck dinner around 7:45 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 or Marie Ariel and check out our manual on leading Shabes.
