Getting Creative About Shabbat

You told us that you wanted alternative programming for socializing as a Jewish community, we listened. 

The second of Four Shared Shabbat dinners will be held on Friday February 17th at 6 PM. We hope you will prioritize this opportunity in your calendar and reach out to other members of our congregation encouraging their participation.

“It is not the Jewish people who keep Shabbat, but rather Shabbat that keeps the Jewish people”
– Ahad Ha-Am

At CEHV we are aware of our members’ diverse Jewish backgrounds and experiences and the different pulls that brought us to and keep us as part of the CEHV community.

The remaining three of Four Shared Shabbat dinners this year are scheduled for February 17th, May 5th and July 21st at 6 PM. An opportunity to enjoy, eat together, build connection and community, and celebrate the Sabbath entirely around the dinner table.

Experience Shabbat with a pot luck dinner, Shabbat prayers & joyous singing around the table, a lively table Torah discussion, and ample opportunity to socialize, connect, share and celebrate the Sabbath in an informal traditional non-traditional setting.

Individuals, couples, and families are asked to bring a vegetarian dinner (no meat please) enough for your family and some to share with anyone sitting close to you.

Warm wishes for a happy 2023!
