Shabbat of Gathering

Beth El’s first Shabbat of Gathering (SoG) was a great success. Our community came together and, with a big leap of faith, we sat with people we did not know. And while we munched on bagels, blintzes, and more, we shared, we listened, we put names and stories with faces. Even when the last notes of Birkat Hamazon were sung, many of us stayed at our tables, talking. The on-line survey reviews proved what we had seen: the vast majority loved the experience and wanted more! “Our table could have used more time. Can you push the mincha service even later?” “I loved the questions.” “The random seating led to great mixing.” “Even if you knew people, you came away with something about them you didn’t know.” We will be hosting another Shabbat of Gathering on Saturday, April 11. It’s during Pesach. If you attended our launch program, we hope you’ll come back for a festive Passover lunch and some wonderful conversation. And if you’re not a regular at Shabbat services, think about joining in. You never know who you’ll meet, what new friends you’ll make!
