Shabbat Across America @ EMJC, May 4
The East Midwood Jewish Center will be among the hundreds of synagogues across the country participating in The National Jewish Outreach Program’s Shabbat Across America, May 4, 2007.
Shabbat Across America, now in its eleventh year, is a program whose goal is to enable every Jew in North America to celebrate Shabbat together with prayer, a festive dinner, song, and discussion.
EMJC’s participation in Shabbat Across America will replace this month’s congregational Rosh Hodesh dinner, but will follow the same format, with the added involvement of students from our Talmud Torah and the East Midwood Hebrew Day School. Kabbalat services will begin at 6:00 pm in the Main Sanctuary and will be conducted by Rabbi Kass and Cantor Levine, with children from the Day School and Talmud Torah contributing to the service. A festive Sabbath meal will follow the service. The EMJC Children’s Chorus will perform for us, and there will be planned activities for children.
Everyone is invited and encouraged to take part in this display of national unity and Ahavat Yisrael. Bring your friends, neighbors, children, and grandchildren. Pick up a dinner reservation form in the Center lobby, or for more information call the Center office, 718-338-3800.
