Friday Night Shabbat Havurah

January 26, 2018 - 6:30pm

Get in on the Spirit of Shabbat at Or Hadash

It's great to take a deep breath at the end of a long week and create a separation between the week and the weekend.  That's what Friday night Shabbat rituals help us do, create a Shabbat frame of mind.  How we get to that frame of mind is probably different for each of us, but for many it may include some version of a relaxed evening meal with friends, lots of talking and kibitzing, and some Shabbat rituals.

Barbara Siegel Israel Program

January 28, 2018 - 9:30am

This year's program is definitely one not to be missed! Elad Kabilio is a renowned, award-winning Israeli cellist who has toured with orchestras in both Europe and the US. Presently he is teaching at the Manhattan School of Music. He has a scholarship from the America-Israel Cultural Foundation, which is the organization through which we were able to find him to come and perform. He will also give a presentation on Israeli music and will speak about the other arts in Israel. Open to all, bring friends and share the warmth of Or Hadash!
