To share the love and joy of Shabbat with every Jewish family in Essex County

To present a Shabbat House prototype that will be replicated in communities around the country and around the world

To engender a revolution in the way we celebrate our Judaism and discover what is truly important in life and in our personal growth

Who is Shabbat House for?

OK, so you're not a regular at Temple and you don't consider yourself religious. But you are a Jew who loves being Jewish and loves Israel and kindness and generosity. In fact, your inner self is as G-dly and divine as every other Jew regardless of outer appearances.

So let's get started. The easiest, most meaningful and fun Jewish experience is Friday evening Shabbat Dinner- eat amazing cooking, say l'chaim, sing, share from your heart with family and friends, old and new- all that is truly important in life in a warm, kind of holy atmosphere. And you do think the concept of a day of rest, once a week and focusing on family is a good idea. So where do you go to enjoy this experience?

Now there is Shabbat House. Rabbi Boruch and Devorah run it, but it is there for you. Simply make a reservation for you, family and/or friends. You couldn't make us happier!

What do you mean? What about cost? There is no cost. But there are ten of us? Sorry, no charge. So who's paying for this amazing celebration every week? Donations from people who think this is a wonderful idea and want to share it with the world.
