Over 100 people came to our Middle Eastern Cuisine Rabbis’ Shabbat Dinner. We host regular Rabbis’ Shabbat Dinners before services throughout the year with fun themes and dinner menus. These events are made possible thanks to a generous grant from the Jewish Heritage Fund for Excellence.
Shabbat (the Sabbath) is a key part of Jewish life. It is a day of rest and spiritual rejuvenation. Shabbat takes place from nightfall on Friday to nightfall on Saturday. In the home and synagogue, blessings are made and candles are lit to welcome Shabbat and signify the start of the festival. The Kiddush prayer is recited to represent the holiness of the day. Blessings are made over wine and challah.
