    Guess Who's Coming to Shabbas? Dinner

    Friday, Aug 30th (All day)
    Guess Who's Coming to Shabbas Dinners have two goals: to strengthen the synagogue community and to help families create meaningful memories for themselves and their children. Host families invite others for Shabbat dinner, and in subsequent months, those guests also become hosts. The program's goal is engagement - we want more people to experience the joyousness of being together on Shabbat. We’re strengthening Jewish communities one Shabbat dinner at a time. To volunteer as a host, contact the CBI office.
