Contemplative Open Air Shabbat Potluck in Christie Pits Park 2017
August 11, 2017 6:30 pm

Christie Pits Park

Join Annex Shul, Beth Tzedec 20s and 30s and Makom: Creative Downtown Judaism on Friday, August 11 in Christie Pits Park for a wonderful potluck picnic.

Beth Tzedec 20s and 30s, Makom and Annex Shul are gathering for a contemplative Open Air Shabbat in Christie Pits Park! Join us for a prayer service that weaves mindfulness meditation and guided intentions into a joyous traditional prayer service, to create a spiritually uplifted Shabbat atmosphere. Prayer services led by Rabbi Emma Gottlieb, Aaron Rotenberg, Rabbi Aaron Levy, Yacov Fruchter and friends will be followed by a vegetarian potluck!

We will be using the “Three Table System” for the potluck dinner.

Please bring a vegetarian dish to share (dairy and Kosher fish is cool), made with Kosher ingredients. Your dish can either be home cooked or purchased.

When you arrive, you will be asked to place your dish on one of three tables.

Table 1. Vegetarian food prepared in strictly kosher kitchens – all packaged/processed foods & drinks (incl. cheese & wine) have a hekhsher.

Table 2. Vegetarian food prepared in strictly vegetarian kitchens – no meat, fish, or fowl at all in the kitchen.

Table 3. Vegetarian food prepared in omnivores’ kitchens – the specific food brought still needs to be vegetarian (fish is ok), but the kitchen isn’t strictly vegetarian nor kosher.

Services which will include informal sections for men, women, and mixed seating/standing will begin at 6:30pm and dinner will follow.
