Celebrate Havdallah – LIVE AND IN-PERSON! – with Beth Ami Congregation

Saturday, July 24 at 6:00 pm (note that this is earlier than usual)

Havdalah is the end of Shabbat when we welcome and prepare for the new week ahead. It’s also a wonderful excuse for Humanistic Jews to get together and reflect on interesting issues. It’s been a long time since we’ve been able to celebrate Havdalah together, but it’s now safe and what was once routine is suddenly quite special – we are basking in the happiness of returning to what we previously took for granted!

We will meet in the Waneka Lake Picnic and Boathouse area, 1600 Caria Drive, Lafayette, for a bring-your-own-picnic event. Our Havdalah service will model our Humanistic Jewish liturgy, referencing the new book “Here Is Our Light,” co-edited by Sheila Malcolm. There will be juice to taste and spices to smell.

Then we’ll enjoy a social gathering and our picnic dinners, followed by a Build Your Own Sundae finale! Beth Ami will provide the sundae ingredients and compostables. Weather permitting, you might end the evening with a walk around the lake, which is a flat and beautiful 1.2-mile stroll.

It is not required, but your RSVP at our Meetup page will help us better plan for this event.

Beth Ami is a welcoming community where we connect to Jewish past, celebrate Jewish present, and link to Jewish future through a humanistic philosophy. Let’s do Jewish together – Humanistically!
