If you would like to attend the dinner, please register here by January 10 (guests are welcome!). The cost of the dinner is $25 per person and kids are half-price. Gluten- and dairy-free options will be available, and please contact Rabbi Toba if finances are an obstacle to participation - all who wish to attend will be able to!

    Following dinner, Rabbi Toba and CDT musicians will be leading a Kabbalat Shabbat service filled with music, plus klezmer dance! It’s sure to be a wonderful evening; feel free to bring a friend.

    All are welcome at the service, regardless of dinner attendance. Oneg, directly following the service, will be held in the sanctuary.
