Kabbalat Shabbat Service and Dinner Celebrating Israel’s 75th Anniversary

April 28, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

  • This event has passed.

A Kabbalat Shabbat evening celebrating Israel at 75!  A festive Israeli-style Oneg Shabbat in the lobby prior to services at 6:00 pm, followed by Shabbat services (both in-person and LiveControl) with a taste of Israeli music-infused. Special video greeting for Yom Ha’atzmaut from Rabbis Gabby Dagan and Naama Dafni Kellen of Shir Hadash in Haifa, one of the oldest and most prominent Reform congregation in Israel.

Following services, come together as a community in person to enjoy a festive evening of delicious dinner, uplifting music (and even dancing!) featuring Shakshuka. This will be a memorable evening you won’t want to miss!

Shakshuka is a Chicago-based band performing their unique brand of Israeli and Sephardic music spiced with jazz. “Shakshuka” is also the name of a Sephardic/Israeli food that is an eclectic and zesty blend of spices, tomatoes and eggs, and an appropriate metaphor for the band. Like the food, Shakshuka’s music is a fusion of Israeli, Sephardic, and Mizrahi elements, as it incorporates spicy musical accents of jazz, Latin and rock. The result is a satisfying musical dish for all ages and tastes.

Dinner Cost: $22 per person
