Shabes Gatherings

UPCOMING SHABES:a Time to Plant and a Time to Uproot.

Please join the BWC Shabes Committee at time of crisis from the global pandemic and from the scourge of racism. We will mark these events with words, song, and reflection. And, we will join in community to rest and restore in the Shabes tradition.
