A Shabbat Sweet at the Beach (not at JRC)

Billy Kaplan ukeleleJoin your JRC family at JRC for our informal Erev Shabbat Services led by Rabbi Rosen and Cantor Friedland at Elliot Park (Dempster Street Beach) in Evanston. Pack a dairy/vegetarian picnic dinner and come early (6 pm) to eat and schmooze.

This Shabbat we're excited to have Billy Kaplan join Rabbi Cantor Howard for a lakefront version of his musical Erev Shabbat service, A Shabbat Sweet - possibly the only Erev Shabbat service to have its own Kickstarter campaign!

Click here for a taste of what's in store, and feel free to share it with everyone you know!

In case of rain: we always try hold out and go to the lakefront, but in case of rain, the whole operation - 6 pm picnic, 7 pm service - moves to the JRC Social Hall. So come rain or shine, be sure to join us!

Date and Time: 
Friday, August 23, 2013 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm
