SIGD & More Celebration
November 4, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Part one of two amazing evenings! Join us as we celebrate the Beta Israel celebration of SIGD, and other Jewish-African communities, starting with Happy Hour, a joyful Kabbalat Shabbat service featuring melodies of Jewish African communities (eg. Beta Israel, Abuyadya, Lemba, Morocco), and culminate with a scrumptious, homemade, authentic Ethiopian dinner in community. Whether these communities are familiar or unfamiliar to you, lets learn about and celebrate them together!
