Family Meet The Rabbi Party, Chanukah Candlelighting Dec 16

Family Meet The Rabbi Party and Chanukah Candle Lighting, Dec 16


The next Meet the Rabbi party will be a Family Party. Come bring your children to a special event that will include Chanukah candlelighting and Havdalah.  Membership Committee member Sue Wilson has volunteered to watch the children attending so that the parents can join the facilitated sharing lead by Rabbi Daria.  The party will be held at the home of Ben and Megan Allen-Kingsland on Saturday, December 16 at 4 p.m.  The Allen-Kingslands have a playroom in the basement.

If you are interested in attending the Allen-Kingsland Meet the Rabbi Party or any of the other parties below,  please use this link to sign up for the party that interests you.

The format of the parties will be part facilitated sharing conducted by the Rabbi attending the party and part social.  Facilitated sharing is a way for the members and the Rabbis to get to know each other better and is a way to increase the web of connection at Oseh Shalom.

Please note that attendance at each party is limited to 20 adults including the hosts.   Teenagers who are interested in participating in the facilitated sharing may sign up for the parties with their parents.  If you find that you cannot attend the party that you signed up for, please change your response so that the slot(s) can be released to other members who may wish to attend that party.  If there is interest by the members, we intend to schedule additional parties beginning at the end of January.

Vegetarian and/or dairy food will be served at each party.    Some hosts have provided additional detail regarding the menu (see below).
