Whether you celebrate Shabbat regularly, or want to learn how to enrich your home Shabbat celebration, you are cordially invited to experience its joy at Congregation Beth Shalom Rodfe Zedek on Friday, March 7 at 6:00 pm. And you don’t have to be Jewish to participate and learn!
All are invited as CBSRZ again welcomes the shoreline community as part of a nationwide Shabbat Across America celebration hosted by 700 synagogues throughout the country. Shabbat, the weekly Jewish day of rest, is when families gather together to observe a traditional service and enjoy a festive meal.
Parents with young children are invited to arrive at 5:45 pm for a Tot Shabbat service led by Rabbi Goldenberg. A wine and cheese reception for adults begins at 6:00 pm followed by a traditional family Shabbat dinner with side dishes contributed by congregation members and main course provided by Alforno’s. Rabbi Rachel Goldenberg and Cantor Brenda Brennan will lead an interactive Shabbat service with all the rituals explained.
Capping the evening will be an Oneg Shabbat when all are invited to enjoy an array of homemade desserts and fellowship.
This special Shabbat Across America celebration is free of charge and open to the shoreline community. CBSRZ is a warm and diverse congregation serving the lower Connecticut River Valley and Shoreline region. The congregation welcomes interfaith families, singles and nontraditional families.
CBSRZ is located at 55 Kings Highway East in Chester. For additional information and to RSVP, please call the office 860.526.8920.
