Apr 17 Yom HaShoah Commemoration
Our special Shabbat commemoration for Yom HaShoah will feature Sonia Pilcer, novelist, essayist and screenwriter, who was born in a displaced persons camp to Polish Jewish Holocaust survivors and arrived with her parents in New York City in the 1950s, where they first lived on the Lower East Side. For more about Sonia Pilcer, visit her website.
Following our Shabbat service and commemoration, join us for potluck dessert and schmoozing.
Mar 28 Passover Seder
Join us for our annual Passover seder and delicious catered meal.
Passover is one of the most celebrated of all Jewish holidays. For Humanistic Jews the fact that our ancestors have retold the Passover story for so many centuries is what makes the holiday significant. We retell the tale because doing so links us to our families and the generations that have preceded us.
All are welcome at this event. Childcare is available for children aged four and over.
