Give Yourself the Gift of Shabbat!

Shabbat Experience Chesed Match

Bring the warmth and love of Shabbat into a fellow BT synagogue member's home with an act of chesed. You and your family can:

  • Create an art project and deliver it to a seasoned member's home before Shabbat
  • Get to know a fellow member by exchanging written letters to be read during Shabbat

Sign up below to be a part of the BT Chesed Match the week of Shabbat, January 15th. Matches will be sent on January 11th to give you a few days to create an art project or mail a letter.

The Shabbat Experience is sponsored in Memory of Nelson, Phyllis and Roberta Neuman by Ricka Neuman and Ian Neuman
