Friday Night Shabbat at the lakefront

June 3 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Each Friday night, June 3rd – August 26th, JRC, (Jewish Reconstructionist Congregation) invites the community to celebrate Shabbat on Evanston’s beautiful lakefront, a JRC summer tradition enjoyed by every generation. Rabbi Rachel Weiss along with Cantor Howard Friedland and Rabbi David Eber will lead joyfully laid-back services awash with singing, laughter, gratitude, nature & prayer. JRC will also host Shabbat Littles at the Lakefront, a story and song-filled Shabbat celebration for 0-5 year olds and their grownups. All are welcome. For more information visit jrctogether.org

Participants are encouraged to set up their blankets and enjoy a picnic style dinner prior to services. Most services are from 7-8 pm at Elliot Park (Lakeshore Blvd. at Hamilton St.) unless otherwise noted. Join our educational leaders to Explore Kehillah Family Education Gatherings to learn about JRC’s Shabbat-based Jewish learning program.
