Shabbattish HOST

Thanks for hosting "Feeling Shabbattish!" on Friday, February 28.  By opening your home to others for a Friday night dinner, you're doing a multi-mitzvah:  hachnasat orchim, welcoming guests, and shamor v'zakhor et yom ha-Shabbat l'kadsho, remembering and observing Shabbat to keep it holy.  In the process you are building the bonds of Am Yisrael, strengthening our Jewish community.  

Once again, the meal will be catered by Barclay, with a delicious menu (vegetarian option available).  The price is $20 per person, $45 per family (one or two adults of the household, and their children).  Please send your check, payable to TBI and marked 'Shabbattish' in the memo line, to TBI at 1920 Skippack Pike, Blue Bell PA 19422.

Please don't miss this wonderful community-wide opportunity to share warm rituals of Shabbat and enhance relationships!  It's important that everyone sign up by February 14 so we have time to match all the families. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact one of us. We look forward to hearing from you by Friday, February 14, and to seeing you on Friday, February 28.

Shabbat Shalom!

We hope this will be fun and rewarding for every participant.  If you have any questions at all, don't hesitate to contact Jen Jacobs (215-518-2664) or Renee Strausberg (610-275-8797).  Thank you!
