Shabbat 25 gives the community chances to connect with Beth El throughout the 25 hours of Shabbat. On Shabbat 25 weekends, we begin on Friday evening with a 6:00 pm service led by Rabbi Greyber and featuring the melodies of the late Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach. These services are followed by a special community Shabbat dinner.
On Saturday afternoons during the summer months, following regular Shabbat morning services and a kiddush lunch, we gather for study after the meal. When the days are shorter, we take a break after lunch, instead, and then gather in the late afternoon for study, seudah sh’lishit (the third Shabbat meal), singing, and Havdalah.
The Friday evening meals costs $18 per person aged 13 and up, and $9 for children aged 7-12. It is free for children under the age of 7, and the total charge for families is capped at $45. Reservations are due the preceding Monday by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (919-682-1238). Please mail payment to Beth El Synagogue with the dinner date & CSD noted in the memo line.
