    Kabbalat Shabbat and Potluck Dinner, with Marilyn Price Storytelling and Puppetry
    Friday, Feb 21st 6:30p to 8:30p
    Marilyn Price, international storyteller, puppeteer, educator, and author, will be joining us for Kabbalat Shabbat on Friday, February 21st! She’ll be sharing stories throughout the service, which will begin at 6:30 pm, as well as a little taste for young ones during our pre-service pizza gathering at 6:00 pm (please RSVP here if you want pizza). “Over the years Marilyn and her puppets have traveled to every corner of the United States using original scripts based on Bible, the Midrash and Hasidic tales. Her choice of materials - she makes all her puppets – reflects her impish sense of humor as nerf balls, feather dusters, toilet paper tubes and baby sleepers come to life with her touch.” As is our custom, the service is followed by a potluck dinner; we supply the wine and drinks and some of the food, congregants bring a dairy or vegetarian dish. It's going to be a Shabbat to remember!

    Shabbat Across the Hill
    Friday, Feb 28th 7:00p to 9:00p
    We are encouraging Hill Havurah members to invite other members for a potluck Shabbat dinner at their homes on Friday, February 28! We’re thinking "scruffy hospitality" here -- just an opportunity to bring in Shabbat while meeting new friends from the Havurah in an intimate atmosphere. If you’d like to be a part of it, email Danny Tomares at danny.tomares@hillhavurah.org by February 14th to let him know… Would you like to attend or host? If you’d like to attend… How many of you are there, and do you have children? What are your dietary restrictions? What will you bring to the potluck? If you’d like to host… How many can you accommodate? Are kids welcome? What’s your address? What's your timing? What are your dietary restrictions? What will you be providing for the potluck? Yay Shabbat!

    Adult Hebrew Lesson at Yavneh
    Sunday, Mar 1st 9:30a to 11:30a
    Interested in bagels, OJ and a bit of Hebrew vocabulary? On March 1, 15 and 22 from 9:30-11:30am, we’ll pilot an informal and fun program to enhance your knowledge of Hebrew language. We will cover vocabulary that is relevant to the time of year and current events, learn some slang, and also where to find Israeli news and Hebrew reading material. No prior knowledge of Hebrew is necessary, although if you know some this will help improve your reading and comprehension. You won’t be asked to read out loud, or take a quiz! Each session will be independent of the others, so come to 1, 2 or all 3!
