What are you doing for Shabbat? Please join us for dinner!

 

Potluck Shabbat is a loose network of people interested in attending and/or hosting Shabbat dinners, potluck style.

Low pressure - hosts generally provide candles, wine, challah and some sort of main dish; guests contribute in whatever way they can (wine, hummus, veggies, fruit, whatever!!)

Potlucks have already taken place in Del Mar, La Jolla, Ocean Beach, Serra Mesa, Point Loma, and Carmel Valley.

Sign up here to receive weekly updates/invites to Potluck Shabbats near you!

All are welcome, but for now we are mostly a network of families with young-ish children (under 12).

Check out the website for general info and/or email Eliza Slavet at elizaslavet@gmail.com if you want to know more.


GET UNPLUGGED AND PLUG INTO SHABBAT - October 23/24

SHABBAT SAN DIEGO is coordinating and planning, in conjunction with local congregations, community organizations, schools and youth groups, a unique free three day experience to inspire more than 20,000 Jewish San Diegans to join in and experience the uniquely joyful mind-body-spiritual restorative powers that a personally evocative Shabbat experience promotes. - See more at our website. If you would like to volunteer, please contact shalombaby@lfjcc.org

Little Mensches aims to provide fun, engaging and enriching opportunities for children between the ages of 4 and 8 to give back to their community. The goal is to Make Kids Into Mensches by allowing "giving back" to become a regular part of these children's lives.

Little Mensches - Please join us for our next Little Mensches event on Sunday, September 20th from 1:00-2:00 at the JCC to help celebrate our one year anniversary. The children will be making "mitzvah bags" that can be distributed to less fortunate members in our community. If you are interested in attending, please email Jessica Fink (littlemensches@lfjcc.org) or Judy Nemzer (shalombaby@lfjcc.org). We would love to have as many people as possible to help celebrate this special milestone, so please feel free to pass this on to your friends as well.

We have a great program planned for this event: In addition to the mitzvah project, we will have crafts, PJ Library storytelling, music by Alan Alpert, and light refreshments. You and your children will be doing a good mitzvah, and will have fun! We look forward to seeing you at the event.


As always, light refreshments will be served at the the event. To help us ensure we have adequate food and supplies, please RSVP to Littlemensches@lfjcc.org.


Need any baby stuff? Have anything you no longer need? Post both on MyJList! This website functions as our very own CraigsList, where only Shalom Baby and Nierman Preschool families can post their items. In addition, discussion boards are available for you to ask, share or discuss parenting issues with other parents just like you! It's secure, FREE, and it just makes sense!

Exploring Values for Everyday Family Living

Give yourself the gift of Jewish learning and share it with your entire family. We are launching a new course that brings parents, of all backgrounds, together for an hour of learning, socializing, and more.

These weekly sessions provides parents with the learning, language, and confidence to incorporate Jewish values at home (with the help of PJ Library books and Shalom Sesame videos). It offers meaningful and relevant experiences around Jewish Holidays and values.

Join use for a special taste session soon (Date TBA)! Contact ilanad@lfjcc.org or 858-362-1327 for details

Build a Micro-Sukkah   
A micro-sukkah is a miniature sukkah made out of things you find around you -- a great project for those short on physical space, sweat equity, or time.
