Egg Foo Shabbos - Community Shabbat Dinner

Friday, December 20, 2019 22 Kislev 5780

7:15 PM - 9:00 PM

What’s the holiday season without some Chinese-inspired dishes with your friends and family at Emanu El after Shabbat services?

Over the years, our clergy has been known to give winter-themed sermons that focus on the Jewish composers who have put together classical Christmas tunes, marketing associated with the holidays and answering the age-old question: Why do Jews eat Chinese food on Christmas? 

What will Rabbi Fixler’s sermon focus on this year?

At the conclusion of services, we’ll head to the Oshman Multi-Purpose for our annual Egg Foo Shabbos community Shabbat dinner. The cost of the meal is just $5 per person for Chinese food staples along with fortune cookies and more.

Please register online or by calling the synagogue by Wednesday, December 18 so that we can plan accordingly. We unfortunately will not be able to handle walk-ups. For more information, contact Jason Plotkin at 713.535.6414 or

We are also excited to share that we will be showing the documentary entitled Ever Open during Egg Foo Shabbos as well. The documentary, put together by congregant Steven Fenberg and film production company Carrithers Studios, includes video and photos spanning the 75 years of our congregation’s existence.
