Upcoming Pop Up Shabbats


I am pleased to announce the Winter Season Pop-up Shabbat dinners! As usual there will be no Fall Season. There has been a great turn-out during Spring and Summer Seasons with much fun, conviviality, and lovely food. It has been wonderful to celebrate Shabbat in one another’s homes. Gerry and I have participated in several. December may seem far off, but these fill up quickly. When the time comes, all you have to do is bring one dish or beverage from a list of choices which I will send to you. Choose as many dinners as you like, then contact me at [email protected]. And you’re in! Happy eating, Joanne Rocklin
