The Great Outdoors Shabbat
Friday August 4th, 4:30-7pm

Join us for our festive summer Shabbat series on the Farm House lawn with your friends and family!
The program is simple:
We provide the ambience, challah, candlelighting, and song, and the rest is up to you!
It’s a true picnic-style Shabbat. Bring a picnic dinner, a beverage, picnic blankets/chairs, and bring in Shabbat with a beautiful sunset in the great outdoors.

Tisha B’Av: Ritual + Blues + Poetry
Monday July 31st, 7-8pm

Tisha B’Av (literally the 9th day of the month of “Av”) is a day that commemorates the destructions of the Jewish homeland in 587 BCE and 70 CE.
While it is a day of connecting with the woundedness of losing one’s homeland, it is also a chance to renew the depth of our compassion to every soul who has experienced it.
On July 31st, we’ll observe Tisha B’Av in a creative way led by Rabbi Nadav Caine, the president of the San Diego Rabbinic Association. The evening will feature some traditional ritual, blues music, and spoken word poetry.


The following events are programmed by Coastal Roots Farm.
