We are always looking for volunteers to host upcoming Shabbat dinners. Please feel comfortable hosting 20-25 people in your home. Anyone interested in hosting should contact Ally. If you do not have the space to accommodate a large group but would still like to host, please consider hosting a smaller "unofficial" potluck that can take place in addition to our monthly dinner.
As always, don't hesitate to send any stories/updates my way.
