Friday Night Shabbat Beach Services


Shabbat by the Lakeshore

Enjoy the summer with our informal Erev Shabbat Services on the beautiful Evanston lakefront. Pack a dairy/vegetarian picnic dinner and come early to eat and schmooze.

In case of rain: we always try hold out and go to the lakefront, but in case of rain or extreme temperatures, the whole operation - 6 pm picnic, 7 pm service - moves inside of JRC. 

Check our website's front page at 5:00pm under "Upcoming Events" for a notification if we are moving the service indoors.
