Share your Shabbat
 
March 1 & 2

 

Dear Friend,

Let’s do this. Please join our exciting “Share Your Shabbat” mitzvah initiative, taking place Shabbat, March 1-2. This is a great opportunity to expand our comfort zones and make our Shabbat tables more inclusive.

Participating in “Share Your Shabbat” works like this: On that Shabbat, you would host in your home either Friday night dinner or Shabbat lunch. You can invite whomever you’d like, but the key is that you invite at least one person or family - a neighbor/friend/colleague- who you presume has rarely, if ever, experienced the beauty of a traditional Shabbat meal. I understand there is much effort that goes into hosting, but there is incredible reward since this powerful initiative reflects the essential Beth Jacob values of Hachnasat Orchim, Shabbat and Am Yisrael. 

To the more than 20 families who have already signed on (names listed below), kol hakavod and thank you for participating! Please give thought regarding who you’re inviting and kindly extend the invitation(s) sooner rather than later. 

If you haven’t signed up yet, please don’t overlook this great community mitzvah opportunity! Let’s open our hearts and our homes on March 1-2. If you are traveling that weekend, you can still participate by inviting a guest the previous or following week. 

Sign on today. If not now, when? If you’re able to participate, please respond “Count me/us IN” directly to this email. 

Sign Up Here

Thank you for your involvement and looking forward to hearing from you, 

Rabbi Topp
