Shabes in the Sukkah

1762 Beacon St. Brookline, MA 02445


Call it what you will, it’s a very good way to spend a Friday night!
Join us for a communal potluck, shabes ritual, and group singing to celebrate Sukkot in our very own Sukkah! 
Please bring a dish to share (fill out this spreadsheet with what you are bringing), and feel free to bring anything you want to drink!
Want to help BUILD the sukkah? Join us for Sukah Raising and Potluck Brunch on Monday October 9 from 11am-1pm at BWC. 
This Shabes is being organized by the BWC Young Adult Committee. 

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 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 and check out our manual on leading Shabes.
