One Community. One Meal. Four Amazing Events.
WHAT IS SHABBAT SHABBANG?
It starts with rituals and appetizers in the lobby. It continues with fascinating and entertaining program offerings, paired with a dairy meal and seasonal wines. We reconvene for delicious desserts and coffee. Your weekend has not just begun. It’s kicked off—with a SHABBANG.
This shabbat evening is inspired by and presented with the Other Israel Film Festival. Our dinners will include conversations, films, panels and music featuring aspects of Israeli and Palestinian society and underrepresented populations in Israel. Our dinner takes the spiritual practice of breaking bread together and uses our shared time to explore human stories, engage our community, and challenge our perspectives. $18, pre-registration required.
