Our Potluck dinners are for all ages. Adults and singles can get to know each other better while children can enjoy a table to draw on the paper tablecloth, another table focused on playing games, and another table for those that wish to participate in Shabbat singing.
Welcome Shabbat Early Service: 6 pm
The service is from 6-6:30 pm, is led by members, prayer focused and family friendly. The service is perfect for our early-to-bed set of all ages, young and old.
There may be a quick quiz after the drash/Torah stories, with some Fair Trade chocolate for those prepared to answer the quiz. Parents: let your children know; this is a great time to engage with our sacred stories. We are looking forward to celebrating Shabbat with you!
