As part of our celebration of Sephardi and Mizrachi heritage, WJC members with family origins in the Mediterranean Basin and Middle East will share their families’ stories and their favorite aspects of their heritage.

[Due to an injury, unfortunately the author Joseph Sassoon is unable to travel to deliver his author talk that had been scheduled for this time. His talk will be rescheduled for the fall. ]
This event is preceded by:

5:30pm-6:00pm: Preschool Family Shabbat Service
These services are specially designed for families with young children, creating a warm and welcoming space where little ones can connect with their heritage in a fun and engaging way. If you’re looking for a way to introduce your preschooler to the beauty and joy of Shabbat, step into the welcoming embrace of a Family Shabbat Service. You might just discover a new favorite family tradition in the making!

6:00pm-7:00pm: Community Shabbat DinnerĀ 
The entire WJC community is invited to join us for a Shabbat dinner. $18 per adult, $10 per child, $60 per family (max)

7:00pm-8:00pm: Rhythm & Ruach
Make WJC your home on Friday night. Join us this service to welcome Shabbat, reflect on the week, and connect with God and with each other. Learn new melodies and sing your old favorites, accompanied by our volunteer music ensemble.
