What SHOULD Shabbos look like?

Find out by joining us for a Friday Night Dinner like no other!

This year Congregation Ahavath Torah will be coordinating an innovative Shabbos Project Weekend. We talk about the importance of setting the right Shabbat atmosphere and only sometimes talk about what that actually looks like. This year we will show each other HOW!

The program on Shabbat Parshat Lech Lecha will be geared to demonstrating step by step what Shabbat should look like in our homes and community. The Rabbis and the Shabbos Project Committee have been hard at work developing a series of programs so we can enjoy first-hand a participatory Shabbat experience with all the energy, fun, excitement, and inspiration that we strive to bring into our homes. We hope the Shabbat environment created on this special Shabbat will leave a lasting impression on our community.
