Shabbat Service with Potluck Dinner on Friday at 6 PM

Shabbat Services Friday, November 28, will begin at 6PM. Shana Stearn and Marnie Lucas will co-lead the service. The Potluck Theme will be appropriate for the time of year. The meal will be a Thanksgiving potluck with turkey. There will be NO dairy. This is a good way to get creative with leftovers and bring them to Thanksgiving potluck.
