“There are a lot of organizations doing political organizing, but I think we’re working on something different here in terms of talking about it as a community. It really struck home for me when we had the Shabbat dinner for gay and lesbian marriage.”
2nd Friday of the Month Shabes Dinners
Join us for six 2nd Friday of the month 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 firstname.lastname@example.org Marie Ariel email@example.com
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.
A sample ritual program booklet can be downloaded here.
