ShabbatUK at Central US

Central joined in the mass frenzy of buying a block of places for the Challah Make last Thursday night. We managed to get a few photos of our members Marilyn and Zohra Keston having what Marilyn described as a very ‘different’ night out and one that was extremely enjoyable.  The proof landed on my desk on Friday morning in the form, of a bowlful of dough! “This is for you, Raquel, because you couldn’t make it!” said Marilyn.  The spirit of Shabbat UK had started.

On Shabbat itself, our attention shifted to our youngest members. They were welcomed to a special children’s service entitled ‘Shabbat experience in 45 minutes’ in which the kids enjoyed highlights of Shabbat, including Shul on ‘Friday night’, coming ‘home’ to a fully laid table with flowers and white tablecloth to enjoy ‘dinner’ where Kiddush, hamotzi and benching were also recited.  We all went to ‘sleep’ and woke up to morning davening and...yes, more Kiddush!  And the best thing about Shabbat afternoon?! – GAMES!  There was a really lovely atmosphere here – one we hope to replicate time and again. 

Should you wish to join us, we’re here every Shabbat!!
