All ages
2 Saturdays, 4:30 PM – 6:30 PM
July 13, 2019
August 3, 2019
Members: Free; Non-Members: $10/family / JCC Quad

Led by Rabbi Ben Newman, Havdalah on the Hudson brings our community together for a gathering that is part jam session, part salon, part picnic, and part Havdalah ceremony.  In an informal setting we will play music, connect in honest conversation, engage in Jewish learning, perform the ritual of Havdalah, eat and schmooze. This event is kid-friendly, so bring the whole family!

If you would like to be part of our musicians group, would like to share a teaching, poem, story or song, or more would like information on this program email Rabbi Ben: bnewman@shamesjcc.org.
