Shabbat in the Park 5772
Congregation Shir Tikvah
announces our 2ndannual …
Friday, July 20
One Friday evening last summer, over a hundred Portland families welcomed the Jewish Sabbath in an idyllic setting on the Willamette with live music, a sing along to familiar melodies and traditional blessings over challah and wine (or a non-alcoholic equivalent).
Some were observant congregants usually in shul on erev Shabbat, others reconnecting with their Jewish roots. Most brought picnic suppers. Everyone seemed to have one thing in common: a very good time. “We must do this again,” many declared to old friends and new. And so we shall.
Join us Friday, July 20 from 5:30 p.m. on at Overlook Park, North Fremont & Interstate. Entertainment begins at 6 with a brief kid-friendly service at 6:45. There is ample parking and the park is just steps from the MAX Yellow Line.
