This weekend: ‘Shabbat Shabeer’ and Birthright ShabbatPosted: June 8, 2012
Although the first day of summer isn’t officially until June 20 this year, the Valley appears to have already switched to summer mode. The calendar is a little light this weekend, but here are two Shabbat programs to enjoy.
Pop Shabbat Shira and ‘Shabbat Shabeer’: Join Todd Herzog and his band for a musical 6 p.m. Shabbat service then visit the 7:15 p.m. Shabbat lounge, for couples and singles ages 21-45. Register here.
Birthright Shabbat: Congregation Beth Tefillah hosts a Birthright Shabbat during Shabbat services, 9:30 a.m.-noon, which will feature a reunion for Birthright participants, a presentation about the program and about the program’s achievements over the past 13 years. Guest speakers are Art Paikowsky, senior vice president for development of the Birthright Israel Foundation, and leaders of student groups on Birthright missions.
Candlelighting time is 7:19 p.m.
