Shabbat at Home
On Friday Night, March 17, we are trying something new (and kind of old). Instead of holding regular Friday Shabbat Services, we will be closed here at Temple Isaiah and strongly encourage our members to join with their friends around a Shabbat Dinner table in their own home, or at the home of a friend. We will make educational materials available for this Shabbat, as well as providing some supplies for those who would like them. Invite your TI friends and neighbors to your home. If you are looking for a match, let us know and we'll try to make a Shabbat match. The menu, the guest list, the program and the structure is up to you!  We hope you take this opportunity for a quiet and relaxing home Shabbat!  As a side note, all names for yahrzeits for 3/17 will be read at Shabbat morning services on 3/18 (10am). If you wish, we will read the names at a different Friday night as well.
