Get into the spirit of Friday - at the J!

Friday — or as we call it, Shabbat — is the day we ease into a state of rest by enjoying the company of our friends, family and community. In Israel, you can find people getting ready for Shabbat by going to the shuk (outdoor market), preparing delicious meals or joining each other in song, for example.

The APJCC is launching Fri-J, a new monthly program, to bring these experiences to you! Join us for a unique Shabbat experience with a different theme each month.

Free and open to the community.
