JCA celebrates Shabbat in the Lobby
Shabbat is one of the most important observances in Judaism and is a time for spiritual enrichment. Beginning in September, the Jewish Community Alliance will hold weekly community Shabbat celebrations. Every Friday at 11:30 a.m. in the JCA lobby, those wishing to participate will be able welcome the Sabbath with traditional blessings, grape juice and challah.
“Shabbat is a time where we rest and come together with the people that we love and reflect upon, while celebrating the week that was," said JCA director of family programs and Jewish outreach, Dave Flagler. "This is a great way for our JCA members, staff and extended family to take part in this weekly tradition as a community,” he added. The entire community is invited to attend and participate in this weekly celebration. For more information, contact Dave Flagler at 904-730-2100, ext. 271.
