Join us for our monthly Kabbalat Shabbat celebration at the historic Vilna Shul in downtown Boston. This month we welcome David Gerzof Richard, founder and president of BIGfish Communications and co-founder of Havurah on the Hill.
Festivities begin with wine and appetizers on the main floor at 6:30. We head upstairs to the sanctuary for an egalitarian Shabbat service led by members of our community, followed by a discussion with our honored guest speaker, before finally heading back downstairs for a laid-back, inviting kosher buffet dinner.
New faces are always welcome at Havurah on the Hill, so bring your friends.
Suggested donation $10.00 per person.
