A Weekend of Peace and Community For Everyone

In this time when we cannot be together, physically, join with twenty one local Jewish institutions, agencies, and affiliates and celebrate Shabbat collectively.   

Starting Thursday, November 19th through Sunday, November 22nd, a variety of virtual programs and engagement opportunities will be offered, meeting the needs of our diverse population. 


We have something special for everyone -  from our youngest members to our oldest, and every stop in between. 

We hope you will “plug” into one or more opportunities over the course of the weekend! 


Check out our robust menu in our event calendar here. Some programs require registration. Events are virtual unless otherwise specified. Please take a look at all our events and register with the link below.
