Shabbat in the Park

Friday, August 17, 6:00 p.m.

County Farm Park, 2230 Platt Rd.

It’s time for Shabbat in the Park, Beth Israel’s annual outdoor Kabbalat Shabbat service and potluck dinner at County Farm Park. Meet at 6:00 p.m. under the pavilions just inside the Platt Rd. park entrance. Participants are asked to bring a vegetarian (dairy or pareve) dish to share. Beth Israel will provide vegetarian lasagna, macaroni and cheese, drinks, and place settings, as well as grape juice for kiddush and challah for motzi. In case of inclement weather, the event will be moved to Beth Israel with the potluck held at the Garfunkel- Schteingart Activities Building at 2010 Washtenaw.

For all young families whose young ones need an earlier start time, feel free to join us a half hour earlier at 5:30 p.m. for playtime and a light snack at the park. Art activities and games will be provided.

We are looking to make a list of people who are willing to sub when a minyan captain is unable to daven on their regular night. Please email lisapbernstein@comcast.net if you would be willing to be contacted to sub on occasion. Thank you!
