Kabbalat Shabbat Experience

  • Kesher Center 13 Garden Court Somerville, MA, 02143 United States (map)

Join us for a musical, soulful, chant-based prayer gathering, followed by a festive vegetarian potluck meal. As always, this will be a prayer service for all levels of experience, and there will be space and activities for kids.

**We will be joined this week by Natan Margalit, founder of the non-profit organization Organic Torah. Natan will speak with us over dinner about the ways that Judaism intersects with ecological principles, and ways that thinking organically can help bring more justice, creativity and hope to our communities. 

Potluck details: Please bring a veggie dish to share with six to eight people, with a label describing the dish's ingredients. The space is nut-free. If you bring cheese, please make sure it uses vegetarian rennet. We'll provide challah and kiddush wine/juice. Feel free to bring additional beverages.

Location details: The Kesher Center is right on the Cambridge/Somerville line, less than a 15-minute walk from Porter Square and about 25 minutes from Harvard Square. There's also plenty of parking. (The best approach is through Bleachery Court.) Go to the back right corner of the parking lot and look for the "Kesher" sign above the white door.

Carpool: If you're driving or need a ride, please use this helpful tool to help people out and minimize emissions. 

Accessibility info: The Kesher Center is ADA accessible, with elevator and an accessible bathroom. There are also gender-neutral bathrooms in the space.
