Home Hospitality Shabbat - November 16, 2018

Thu, 10/25/2018 - 12:41pm -- marnilh


Returns – November 16, 2018

Plan an evening with old friends – or new – for Friday, November 16th.  Invite friends to welcome Shabbat at your home. Serve dinner as and when you want – potluck, buffet, sit-down, takeout – whatever works for you and your friends.  Experience the joy of being with family and friends and leaving everyday cares behind. 

To help you welcome Shabbat, we have prayers and a few ideas for you to add to your evening as you wish; please contact the office.  If you “do it yourself,” please let us know or better yet, send pictures.  We want as many Temple members to participate in a Home Hospitality Shabbat as possible.

A number of our Temple members will also host Shabbat dinners in their homes at 7:30 p.m. after a 6:00 p.m. Temple Shabbat Service.  Please sign up by Sunday, November 11th to allow our hosts to prepare.

If you would like to host a Shabbat dinner or want to attend a dinner given by a Temple member, please contact Nilene Evans Chase at  Please let us know if you have allergies, particularly to pets and food, or require kosher food.
