May 7 & 21 Open Houses
Are you wondering what Humanistic Judaism is all about? Thinking about a unique Bar or Bat Mitzvah program for your child? Looking for a welcoming secular Jewish community for yourself?
You are invited to attend one of our Spring Open Houses/Information Sessions where Rabbi Peter Schweitzer will introduce you to Humanistic Judaism, your children (and you) can attend our KidSchool classes, and where you can schmooze with members.
May 5 Family Shabbat
Shabbat, for many, is about family getting together with friends for a wonderful meal, sharing stories and song. Join our intergenerational extended family and friends as we celebrate Shabbat with candle lighting, shared readings, and music, followed by a delicious potluck dinner. Children of all ages welcome, as are guests.
Please RSVP by April 28 to Carol Sternhell to discuss what you would like to bring (if you don’t cook, you can shop!).
Apr 21 Yom HaShoah
Please join us for our annual Yom HaShoah commemoration following our Shabbat service. Our commemoration will feature a memorial candle lighting ceremony, readings by Holocaust survivors, and a discussion led by Rabbi Peter Schweitzer. Stay for potluck dessert and conversation.
