After services the program continues with Shabbat Dinner at 7:00 pm and  lecture at 8:00 pm, followed by questions and discussion. Babysitting will be provided. Reservations required for dinner and lecture: $15/adult, $12/child (under 12 years old), $50 max per family. Space is limited and will fill quickly, so RSVP now!  Please email office@bonaishalom.org
