Shared Shabbat DinnersBy Emily Hummel
No Jewish ritual better captures the essence of Jewish life, brings people together to build community, deepens conversation, and adds joy to life than Shabbat dinner.
On Friday, March 8, instead of gathering at NVHC for services, we gather with friends (and soon-to-be friends) over delicious potluck meals and share the joys of Shabbat together at home.
What started two years ago as 50 Shabbat Dinners has grown into a beautiful tradition where NVHC families get together across the region to be together and celebrate Shabbat as an NVHC community.
How it works:
- You sign up as a Host or a Guest.
- You answer some questions about your dinner preferences: Do you keep kosher? Do you want to have dinner with just adults? Are you allergic to anything?
- The matchmakers at NVHC will match guests and hosts with similar preferences.
- Once the matches are made, we’ll let you know who you’re hosting or at whose house you’ll be a guest.
Imagine how exciting it will be to celebrate Shabbat together in our homes! We hope everyone will join us.
Registration for Shared Shabbat Dinners is now closed. We have over 150 people signed up – thank you!
