Celebrate Shabbat rituals and appetizers in the lobby, dinner with a choice of programs, ending with dessert/coffee in the lobby. Adult Program 1: Klezmer Meets Bluegrass. Klezmer clarinetist Margot Leverett joins forces with today's stars of klezmer and bluegrass to explore the shared musical spirit of two genres literally worlds apart. The resulting medleys and improvisations are at once raw, funny, soulful, and foot-stomping.

Family Program: Shabbat Fun and Games for Families. Begin with Shabbat rituals followed by a buffet dinner. Afterwards parents can sit back and enjoy a glass of wine while the kids take part in relay races, tumbling, and other gym activities with the JCC's coaches! Adult Program 2: Jewish Reflections on the Ransom of Galid Shalit with Rabbi Saul Berman. Jewish Law and experience has long contended with the problem of redeeming hostages. Explore the teachings of Jewish law and thoughts on the question of what justifiable limits are to be placed on such action.
