Our Third Shabbat Chavurah Event
Friday, July 28
The Shabbat Chavurah is an opportunity to spend Shabbat with new (or old) friends in each others homes. This event takes place in the homes of those who volunteer to be hosts. We will do the matching and help you coordinate your Shabbat meals. This is a potluck, casual (dairy) dinner together- but it's not about the food- it's about forging new friendships among ourselves and our kids and bringing in the beauty of Shabbat together. If you volunteer to host, we will send you a Shabbat Chavurah Guide with everything you need to know to host a Shabbat dinner. Hosts will be asked to provide the main dish for the meal. If you sign up to be a guest at someone's home, please be prepared to bring at least 2 items off the sign up sheet with you, as the groups may be small, and we don't want the whole meal falling on our hosts to provide. Please RSVP in the Google Form link by Wednesday, July 11.
