Your Shabbat Guest
A Model for Outreach, Study, and Jewish Life Enrichment
Shabbat Morning — Benzy, in consultation with the professional staff and lay leadership, will lead portions of the service, and conduct a second session of text exploration.
Shabbat morning services will be followed by a Kiddush luncheon, which will be followed by a third session of text exploration.
Note: If the community wishes, there can be a session late Shabbat afternoon that will lead into a rich and melodic conclusion of Shabbat (Havdallah).
Sunday — Benzy will conduct a session geared toward any of the following demographic segments of the community not directly reached over Shabbat. Possibilities include:
-Parents of Elementary School Children
-Teens and Their Parents
-Senior Citizens in the Community
-Teaching Faculty of Religious Schools
-Lay Leaders Concerned with Jewish Life and Jewish Education
A festive Shabbat dinner--focusing upon the ritual aspects of this holy event--as well as the songs, the family unity, and the community inclusiveness of Shabbat, follows Kabbalat Shabbat Services.
Note: The Erev Shabbat program will include a session of community text study with YSG either during the Kabbalat Shabbat service, or during Shabbat dinner.
