What’s your story? How do our stories affect who we’ve been, who we are, and who we’re becoming? Join us for a special storytelling Shabbat gathering with Aaron Henne, artistic director of theatre dybbuk, as he takes us on a journey through our own individual and communal narratives which illuminate the past as well as the here and now.
This Shabbat takes place during Jewish American Heritage Month and the period between Passover and Shavuot, when we are on a path toward greater understanding and connection to ourselves and our world. Our delicious menu will fuse dishes of the Jewish diaspora with American culinary staples!
Guests will have the choice to purchase a table (up to six guests) for their own pod, or sit at a community table to make new friends (register soon – we can only honor GF and vegan dietary preferences submitted by Monday, May 16th)!
Because this event is centered around a meal, we are requiring that all guests be fully vaccinated and show proof upon entry (either virtual QR code or the physical card in-hand). We also encourage our guests to get boosted. We are capping the event at 30 guests.
Please email Paige Milgrom-Hills if you have additional questions or need support.
