Shabbat Ba’Bayit: Shabbat in the Home Friday, January 19, 2018, at 6:30 pm

The Sages of old spoke of Shabbat as a glimpse of the World to Come. A gift to us human beings from the Treasure-house of HaShem, The Divine.

All are welcome to bring in Shabbat with prayers, singing and a Kosher Shabbat dinner at the home of MCJC members Steve and Sharon Danzig. Steve and Sharon will prepare a traditional Kosher chicken dinner, just like Bubbe used to make, but even better!

We are past the RSVP date. However, if you do wish to participate, please contact Jill Purvin at events@mcjconline.org, or leave a message with the MCJC office at 815-455-1810, to help us plan.

NOTE: The MCJC building will be closed this Friday night.
