A Seder for Shabbat!?!? If you thought Seders were only for Passover, then join us on Friday, October 23 at 6:00 p.m. for the first in our new “Shabbat 101” series of intergenerational learning experiences. We will sit down together to a Shabbat Seder, complete with a delicious dinner, during which we will learn the “seven steps to Shabbat” (only about half as many steps as a Passover seder!), create a beautiful ritual object for you to take home, and begin to explore the myriad types of meaningful Shabbat experiences. Following dinner, we will head upstairs to the sanctuary, to join Rabbi Jim for a very special and informative Shabbat service at 7:45 p.m., in which we will begin to answer together the question: if we can make a Shabbat Seder at home, then why do we come together at temple for Shabbat worship services? After services, we will reconvene in the Social Hall for a festive Oneg Shabbat reception — and a lot more informal discussion!
While worship services are always free and open to the public — and this series, in particular, is very appropriate for guests — space is limited for the dinner and pre-service program, and registration is required. The cost for dinner is $5/person or $18/family. RSVP by Monday, October 19 at firstname.lastname@example.org. Payment can be made via cash or check at the door, or in advance via Paypal at our website www.tbshudson.org/duesfeesdonations. Please be sure to write “Shabbat 101 October” in the “type of payment box.” For questions or further information, please contact Stefani Carlson, Education Director, at email@example.com or (330)752-3349.
