shabbat in the park: friday, june 16th @ glenlake park

Join the CSI community and friends as we head "off-campus" to local parks this summer and fall. We'll kick off Shabbat with a few songs on guitar and prayers over wine/juice and challah, followed by a fun vegetarian-friendly meal. The first gathering will be Friday, June 16th at Glenlake Park in Decatur at 5:45 pm. These casual Friday evenings are a terrific way to socialize with Shearith Israel members of all ages, so bring the kids AND the grown-ups and tell any prospective members that they are welcome to join us, too — the more, the merrier!
