shabbat in the park: friday, june 21st @ glenlake park (decatur), 7:30 pm

Join Shearith Israel as we head "off-campus" to a few local parks this summer and fall. The first Shabbat in the Park will be on Friday, June 21st at Glenlake Park in Decatur at 5:45 pm. 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. 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!
