Community Shabbat Dinner

Community Shabbat is an experience hosted by the J Los Angeles staff, typically held once a month. Families are invited to come together and celebrate the traditions of Shabbat on the patio, weather permitting. The evening is filled with joy as we raise our voices in song and prayer led by the talented Miss Melo, eat and dance the night away together beside the Los Angeles sunset. Please bring your own dinner.
