This wonderful monthly program celebrates Shabbat in a way that is both traditional and meaningful. Seniors will enjoy home baked Challah, grape juice and traditional Shabbat songs.


What is Shabbat?
Shabbat is celebrated every week from sundown on Friday to nightfall on Saturday. In the Hebrew language, Shabbat means "resting." As is recounted in the beginning of the Book of Genesis, G‑d created the world in six days and on the seventh He rested.


Traditional Shabbat Celebration
Shabbat is ushered in on Friday evening with the lighting of candles followed by a festive meal which is opened by the Kiddush blessing over a cup of wine or grape juice, and the Hamotzie blessing over two whole loaves of bread called Challah.
