Living Shabbat

Whether you are new to celebrating Shabbat
or bake your own challah every week,
there’s a place for you at the table.

Shabbat is a time for home celebration, for sharing meals with family and friends, with neighbors and sojourners.  Living Shabbat is one way our community brings people together.

There are many ways to Live Shabbat with the Kane Street Community in 5774

On each Living Shabbat, Kane Street members host meals for friends, community members and visitors.  The Living Shabbat team matches hosts and guests.  We invite you to be a host, be a guest, or take a turn doing each.
