Friday Night Shabbat Beach Services

Everybody's invited to join us for 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 to the JRC Social Hall. Sign up for our email list to receive weather updates.
