Let your table (tisch in Yiddish) buzz with joy, fun and friendship on Shabbat!
Adath wants to help young families create a more intentional Shabbat community at home. No matter your level of knowledge and comfort with prayer and practices, whether or not you grew up in the Twin Cities, regardless of financial background, let us make it easy for you to create home-based Shabbat fun!
Your children’s experience of Shabbat can be a game-changer for how they (and you!) will engage in Jewish life for years to come.
How TISCH works. Young families, with at least one child newborn through Bar/Bat Mitzvah, will host another congregant family that they have not hosted before.
Both families will also commit to a volunteer project within six months of their Shabbat dinner. Volunteer projects can be done at local organizations where Adath has existing partnerships through our synagogue’s Hesed Committee. Choices include but are not limited to Loaves & Fishes, Our Saviour’s Housing, Ronald McDonald House, and Sojourner Women’s Shelter. Host families will receive a $100 micro grant ($50 before the Shabbat dinner and $50 after the volunteer project.)
All TISCH families will come together for a Super Shabbat potluck dinner in the spring, to celebrate the incredible ruach (spirit) shared.
