Day/Time: Saturday, December 19, 7-9 pm (NOT THIS Saturday, but next week!)

The traditional kitchen party apparently involves music and traditional songs and ends up with everyone hanging out in the kitchen for the night.” 
Join us for a sweet and short musical HAVDALAH service, followed by a rocking spirited KITCHEN PARTY! Bring your drums and other musical instruments for a lively evening of traditional and not-so-traditional chants, songs, ballads, and much more that will lighten, brighten, and lift your spirit in this darkest time of the year. Songsheets provided.
Food and music are at the center of the kitchen party celebration, so please bring, as you are able, a healthy nosh or beverage to share.
