Home-Hosted Shabbat Dinners
We look forward to these meals fostering a sense of community and making new connections for us all as we share delicious meals in each others' homes. Sorry, sign-ups for dinners are now closed.
Shabbat Afternoon Tune Sharing
Join us for an afternoon of tune-sharing at 5pm. We'll expand our repertoire of tunes by sharing new and old music. We invite you to bring a tune from the siddur (or machzor) to share with the group. Strong voices / talent not required (at all!). All we ask is that you bring enthusiasm, interest in learning new tunes, and willingness to join your voice with others. Location is the downstairs library. Sign-up here so we know to expect you.
