Eat, Sing, Connect: Friday Evening Shabbat Celebrations

It's easy to lose track of what matters most, whether we are caught up in the hassles of daily life, stressed by the news, or facing life's challenges.


Shabbat literally means "stop." It is a time to unplug from daily pressures so we can connect with what is most important in life.​

Join us to receive the gift of Shabbat.

Light candles, sing, enjoy wine or juice, challah, a vegetarian meal, and meaningful conversation. No experience is necessary, and all are welcome.

WHO: You don’t need to be Jewish, or familiar with Jewish tradition, to draw on the riches of Shabbat! No experience is necessary, and you are welcome no matter what your background. Feel free to invite friends or family. 

HOW: We hold Shabbat dinners throughout the year at participants' homes. If you might be interested in hosting a Shabbat gathering, please be in touch and we can explore that possibility.​
