Friday Evening "Share-A-Shabbat"

 

One Friday evening per month, we gather as a Chai Center community for a casual, enriching Shabbat experience. 


We light the Shabbat candles, sing songs, share in beautiful Shabbat blessings, learn a little about Judaism, and enjoy the camaraderie with other Jewish families.  


Some Fridays are hosted at a supporter's home, as we each contribute to a pot-luck dinner. 

Other Fridays are held at Chai Center where one of our partner rabbis or cantors and musicians joins us.  


Mark your calendar for these upcoming dates: 

 

  • July 21: Share-A-Shabbat at the home of Traci & Adam Blank
  • August 4: Share-A-Shabbat at the home of Shari & Gabe Halpern
  • October 6: Share-A-Shabbat in the sukkah

 

Shabbat Morning Study Experience


Every Saturday, our supporters gather for a morning of spiritual enrichment.  

Our morning begins at 9:00 am with noshing & shmoozing.  Members volunteer to provide a breakfast nosh, challah & wine. 
 
Following that, we engage in an intellectual exploration of a Torah portion or conversations on a Jewish topic. We participate together in a relaxed and highly participatory style.  Three times per month, our sessions are led by one of our partner rabbis.  On other mornings, we are lay-led.  Opportunities are available to recite Kaddish or ask for the healing of a loved one.
We invite you to share these community experiences with us.
