Hosted Shabbat Dinners in the 'Hood
In addition to our monthly community-wide potlucks, WJOA encourages anyone who wishes to, to host a smaller dinner in their home. Hosts decide whether to have a service, how many people they can accommodate, and whether or not it is potluck style. This is a great time to meet new and old friends in a more intimate setting. Please contact Ally if you are interested in hosting.
