Kabbalat Shabbat Honoring Yiddish
Friday, July 25 / 6:15 PM

Our featured speaker for our annual Yiddish-themed Kabbalat Shabbat is Jeremiah Wilton, an amateur genealogist and language geek whose efforts at deciphering family documents led him to an interest in Yiddish.

Our service also features Yiddish poetry, songs, and prayers presented by students from our year-long Yiddish classes, along with traditional Hebrew liturgy and English readings. An oneg featuring Eastern European treats will follow the service.
