Interfaith Havdalah at Congregation Beth El

Sat, Mar 2 • 6:00 pm

Congregation Beth El

Our friends at Congregation Beth El (where our church met for several months following the fire), have invited us to participate in this year's interfaith Havdalah event on Saturday, March 2 at 6 pm. After the short service, the participants are invited to a vegetarian dinner at the homes of Beth El congregants.
 
This event has proved to be a delightful annual gathering for all of us. Everyone is welcome including children. The general idea is that we gather together at Beth El to celebrate Havdalah followed by dinner.
 
Havdalah is a Jewish ceremony marking the end of the Sabbath. It ushers in the new week, and its rituals include lighting a special candle with several wicks, saying blessings, smelling sweet spices and singing songs. This year the service, which will start at 6 pm will be led by cantor Elaya in the social hall. Please use this Eventbrite link to sign up and participate.
 
If you have questions, please email Caroline Lehman, InterFaith Outreach for Congregation Beth El.
