MNjcc’s Shabbat Together is a monthly series emphasizing positive, accessible and meaningful Shabbat experiences for the downtown Jewish community. Each Shabbat Together offers participatory services, blessings, dinner and interactive activities.
No Shush Shabbats serve families and individuals who have felt ‘shushed’ out of Jewish communal spaces or who have not been able to enjoy them due to a lack of accessibility. These are family-friendly, inclusive, participatory, energetic and noisy by design!
LGBTQ+ Ally Shabbats provide a welcoming space for those who identify as part of the wider Jewish LGBTQ+ community to connect in a meaningful, inclusive way during Shabbat.
Community Shabbats welcome those in the Jewish community who may experience financial or other barriers to celebrating or observing Shabbat.
