    קבלת שבת באווירה ישראלית 
    מה יותר ישראלי מארוחת שישי עם חברים? בואו להתחיל את סוף השבוע באווירה נינוחה וביתית. בואו להתארח אצלנו עם ארוחת שישי, הדלקת נרות והרבה הפעלות לילדים, שמשתנות מדי פעילות בהתאם לחגים או לאירועים הצמודים למועד קבלת השבת. ובזמן שהילדים לומדים עוד על החגים, המבוגרים מוזמנים לפטפט ולהכיר את הקהילה, וכמובן לחזור הביתה לכיור ללא כלים.

    6:30-8:30 pm

    מבוגרים:15$  ן ילדים: ללא עלות
