BRING YOUR OWN PICNIC and PICNIC BLANKET

CHALLAH, DESSERTS, AND DRINKS PROVIDED!

Join us for a casual  “Shabbat Under the Sky” BYOP (bring your own picnic!)  gathering  – with drinks and desserts provided.  Let’s re-connect at the end of the summer, celebrate Shabbat, and perhaps make some music around a fire if you bring your instruments!  We’ll likely gather at Rabbi Simcha’s  home in Mt. Airy, OR  in the Narberth/Lower Merion area if someone wants to host in your yard. Mt. Airy is only fifteen minutes away….so don’t let that keep you from saying you’ll be there!  Reply by sending an email to rabbisimchazevit@gmail.com, and the address will be sent to you. Members and others interested in the Havurah are welcome!

Community Shabbat with Potluck
Sep 8 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Join us as we reconnect after summer for the first of our monthly Shabbat Community Potluck gatherings. Each month, we gather to celebrate Shabbat with song, a brief teaching or story, candle-lighting, and a delicious pot luck dinner, followed by an activity that involves the whole community. This month’s after dinner activity will give us a chance to greet members new and old with a fun “mixer” that helps us learn more about each other, deepening our connections and forming new ones. Adults who would like to stay for a High Holiday preparation learning session are invited to do so from 8:00 – 9:00 pm.

PLEASE SIGN UP HERE to let us know you’ll be joining us, and what you can bring!
