Celebrate Sabbath at the Gazebo with Or Shalom

Congregation Or Shalom, an open-minded, welcoming, progressive synagogue invites members and nonmembers to its annual outdoor Shabbat (Sabbath) at the Gazebo on Friday, September 2, 2022, beginning at 7:00 PM, High Plains Community Center, 525 Orange Center Road, Orange, CT.  Spiritual leader Rabbi Alvin Wainhaus said, “Bring yourselves, relatives and friends for some prayer.  I’ll bring my guitar for a festive singalong.  Who knows, maybe dancing will break out as we celebrate!”

Shabbat at the Gazebo follows the synagogue’s Shabbat at the Beach in Milford attended by a record crowd of over 100 adults and children.  Synagogue president Bob Spaulding said, “We hope to have an even greater crowd at this event.”  He added, “Bring a chair or blanket to sit on.  Come early with dinner or snacks before the service.”  An Oneg (festive gathering) with light refreshments will follow as part of the celebration.  And, he stated, “Dogs on leashes and cats are welcome!”

Shabbat at the Gazebo is a continuation of Or Shalom’s yearlong celebration and reintroduction of its commitment to provide Jews and non-Jews with spiritual, social and educational experiences.  If you are not a synagogue member, please let us know you are coming to Shabbat at the Gazebo by calling the office: 203-799-2341.
