Shabbat Club
Saturday, October 11, 1:00 pm
Look for a group of your fellow and sister congregants (and guests) once a month on Saturday at 1:00 pm in the second floor reception room, opposite the entrance to the sanctuary. All are welcome, including first-timers. Enjoy some learning, some laughs, and some camaraderie and hear about and discuss various Jewish-related subjects- a different one each month. Refreshments are served. Each meeting lasts about one hour. Member, Deborah Newman, organizes this group. On October 11, Daniel Neiden, a member of our congregation and sometimes substitute cantor, will share his experiences as an actor, writer, producer, and all-round funny guy.
