75th Birthday Party & Heritage Shabbat

Friday, June 7, 2019 4 Sivan 5779

6:00 PM - 8:30 PMEmanu El

We're kicking off the summer with a special Shabbat service in honor of Congregation Emanu El's 75th anniversary and our congregants born in 1944. We're taking the post-service oneg up a notch with a good old-fashioned birthday celebration. Everyone is invited!

Our Heritage Shabbat service at 6:00 p.m. in the Barish Sanctuary will include a rich sampling of the diverse musical styles that have given melody to our prayers for 75 years. Together, we will be moved under Cantor Simmons' leadership by the majestic choir and organ, uplifted by the rhythm and soul of the Shabbatones, and inspired by the spirit and sweetness of our youth choir.

Those congregants celebrating their 75th birthday in 2019 are invited to check in at a VIP table prior to entering the sanctuary. They will be collectively blessed by our clergy team during services.

At 6:30 p.m., Tot Shabbat in the Proler Chapel, is for our youngest congregants and their families. Several surprises are in store for tots who take part. Plus, those celebrating birthdays in June and July will be blessed during the kid-centered worship service.

Immediately following Heritage Shabbat and Tot Shabbat is our 75th Birthday BASH for the ages... and ALL ages! The entire congregation is invited to enjoy an assortment of noshables, sweet tables, an old-timey photo booth, and other surprises. It doesn't matter in which decade you were born, there will be something for everyone. Plus, no birthday party is complete without ice cream and cake. We'll have plenty of both.

The birthday party chairs are Tracey Blumrosen, Tammy Feldstein, Dora Klaff, and Rhonda Lipper. Elyse Kalmans and Cheryl Levy are co-chairing our year-long celebration of Congregation Emanu El's 75th anniversary.

No need to RSVP for the birthday party. Please.... just come to pray, then stick around to play!
