Shabbat at the Table

Special Shabbat Dinner for our children from Kindergarten through 4th grade, their siblings, parents, and grandparents.

Join us on Friday, November 15 at 6PM along with some special friends to welcome Shabbat at the Table.

We'll light the candles, recite kiddush and learn some Shabbat traditions that you can take home.

This program is for folks whose Shabbat tradition may be pizza and a movie right on through to those who stop at sundown and eat chicken like in the old country. So basically everyone.

Please RSVP . Dinner will be provided but please bring a dairy/vegetarian side dish to share.
What's all this fuss about tradition having a vote not a veto?
Rabbi Fred will tell you!
This is NOT Rabbi Fred. If you are old enough to remember who this is, you'll enjoy this clip. If you don't know who this is, watch it anyway. It's funny. And it has nothing to do with Reconstructionist Judaism.
All are welcome for this quick overview of Reconstructionist Judaism with Rabbi Fred – we’ll run through WHO we are as a people, HOW we live our Jewish lives, WHAT we might say about God and godliness, and WHERE Reconstructionist Judaism is and is headed. 

A Sunday series in January & February will go deeper into each area, and we hope you’ll join for that too -- but here’s the Cliff’s Notes version, in under an hour, on Shabbat morning. On one foot.

Saturday, November 16 at 9:45
in the Double Classroom
Light Refreshments will be served.

Adat Shalom wants your feedback. Please take a few minutes and think back to your experience during the High Holidays -- for you and for your family.

We are honored that Middle Eastern vocalist and composer Galeet Dardashti will be joining us at Adat Shalom to share her many musical gifts. She is the granddaughter of the most renowned singer of Persian classical music in Iran in his day, and daughter of highly esteemed cantor. She is the first woman in her family to continue her family tradition of distinguished Persian and Jewish musicianship. As leader and vocalist of the edgy all-female Mizrahi band Divahn, Dardashti’s “sultry delivery spans international styles and clings to listeners long after the last round of applause” (Jerusalem Report). Her acoustic/electronic solo project The Naming, supported by a Six Points Fellowship and a Hadassah-Brandeis Institute Fellowship, draws inspiration from the musical and cultural landscapes of the Middle East and some of the provocative yet unsung Biblical women who lived there. The Huffington Post calls the album "a heart stopping effort."

Join us for Dinner (reservations required), Kabbalat Shabbat Services and Discussion and Shabbat morning services as well as a post-Oneg discussion. Click here to RSVP for dinner.
Galeet Dardashti joins us as part of the Allan Schwarz Musical Shabbaton. This annual Shabbaton is generously dedicated to the memory of Allan Schwarz by his family, Rabbi Sid Schwarz, Sandy Pearlstein and their children.
