March Events

Shabbat Morning Chevra Torah
March 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30, 10 AM

Chevra Torah meets on Saturday mornings from 10:00 AM – 11:30 for an in-depth discussion of the weekly Torah portion, combining traditional commentaries with contemporary perspectives and the wisdom of our own experience. We’d love to have you join us. 

Se’udah Sh’lishit
March 2, 5:00 PM

In  the past, Jews would commonly have two meals per day but on Shabbat, there would be a third meal to help denote it as a unique day. Part of the tradition dates to more mystical times when Jews would study as the sun was setting and Shabbat was dwindling: this was considered a special time. We will celebrate  Se’udah Sh’lishit on March 2 with shared readings, songs, and stories, and of course a special (light) third meal. Afterward, we will have a Havdalah service to conclude the Sabbath. Then, we will  kick off the new week with songs and musical instrument jam.
