Shabbat Afternoon Service/Bar Mitzvah of Nathan Donagi followed by Havurah Sukkot party! @ Merion Friends Meeting House
Sep 29 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm

At this very special Shabbat afternoon service during the week of Sukkot, Nathan Donagi will be called to the Torah as a Bar MItzvah. All are invited and encouraged to join us for this service, which will include a brief teaching about Sukkot as it comes to an end, and the holiday of Simchat Torah that immediately follows Sukkot.

At the conclusion of the service, we’ll eat, drink, and be merry – with appetizers and dessert provided by the Donagi family in honor of Nathan, and our usual Sukkot potluck for dinner. Another name for Sukkot is Zman Simchateinu (the time of our joy!) – so join us for this joyful harvest celebration  – the harvest of the earth, of the abundant blessings that surround us, and the blessing of our community as one of our Havurah kids becomes Bar Mitzvah!

The service will conclude and the meal and celebration will begin at about 5:30. Please RSVP here and let us know what dish you’ll bring to share.
