May 4th- The Bay Ridge Jewish Center will be hosting Shabbat Across America this shabbas. Services begin at 6:30 and they will be followed by a chicken dinner. The reason that we do this is to try and make people aware of what shabbat is and how it is celebrated. It also helps bring our community together. The cost of the dinner is $20 for adults if you pay in advance, $10 for kids, and $25 at the door-- which we will only take if you make it here before candle lighting. Otherwise, please pay next week.
May 5th- We will also be having a "learners service" the following day, which means that we will slow things down a bit and explain some of what is going on in the service. That will be Shabbat Morning, services begin at 9:00am.
May 6th- Lag B'Omer! Come and celebrate with us-- a bonfire out back, with smores and corn, celebrating the day the plague lifted from Rabbi Akiva's students. The fire will be lit around 6:30pm.
