Shabbat Across America Service
On Friday, March 12 West End Temple will participate in "Shabbat Across America/Canada." The Tem ple will be celebrating Shabbat with 700 other synagogues and communities across America and Canada. This national evening is designed to reach Jews who want to know about Judaism.
A classic Shabbat dinner will begin at 6:00 p.m. followed by a special service to commemorate the occasion. At the dinner the traditional prayer over the Shabbat candles will be recited as well as a blessing over the challah bread and wine. Parents will have the opportunity to say the Shabbat Blessing for their children and husbands will say the "Aiches Chai-Al" prayer in thankfulness of their wives for sharing in their lives.
Following the dinner, the congregation will join as a "community of faith, together with the choir" for a special service.
The fee for the dinner is $15 for Temple members, $20 for non-members and $10 for children. Reser vations must be made by March 5. For more information call the Tem ple office at 718.634.0301.
