Shabbat Inside Out: A Family and Community Celebration of Shabbat!
Shabbat Inside Out is an exciting opportunity to experience Shabbat joyfully and refreshingly, with old friends and new. On the fourth Friday of the month beginning in October, we will shift from Temple-centered Shabbat worship to an off-site, socially oriented Shabbat observance, with dinner and dessert, ritual blessings, and the potentail for study. We will encourage Shabbat dinner and/or dessert, family or communal, off-site either in host congregants' homes or in local restuarant venues. Barnert Temple leaders will facilitate Shabbat dinner invitations as requested.
Then on the Saturday of that weekend, we are offering a variety of Shabbat morning opportunities, running parallel to one antoher. Adult sessions include: Torah Study, Shabbat Yoga. When there is not a Bar/Bat Mitzvah, we will offer Shabbat Kabbalah as well. Youth sessions are run by Rabbi Steiner and Sara Losch. We will join together at the end of our sessions for a communal Kiddush.
This new model, with both Friday night and Saturday morning, offers us opportunities to more fully embrace, engage and enjoy Shabbat!
Our next Shabbat Inside Out will be November 28 and 29. Click here to view a conversation between Rabbi Frishman and Rabbi Steiner.
