Come hang downtown after Yom Kippur!
You've spent the day reflecting, you haven't eaten until just recently (and we'll have some food if you'd like to break the fast with us!), so let's get together for Havdallah and to celebrate the end of the holiday together!
Did you know the ancient rabbis actually taught that Yom Kippur was a great time for singles to meet their match? True story!
The evening will start at 8 at Matt's apartment downtown for a nosh, a l'chayim and Havdallah, and then we'll continue on to The Rusted Crow at 9! Bring a friend!
RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org for exact address :)
RSVP on Facebook and you'll get a message with Matt's address!
Come celebrate Simchat Torah with The Well, Temple Israel, and the NEW Royal Oak Moishe House crew with a night of pub trivia!
We're providing the pizza, beer, and some great trivia (with some Jewy Q's mixed in) at no cost due to the generosity of donors.
Teams can be up to 8 people. Feel free to form your own super team beforehand, or join forces with folks that you meet on the spot.
Any Questions feel free to comment below or email Matt at email@example.com
Are you considering hosting a Rosh Hashanah meal this year and want to take it to the next level? Are you looking to up your family's gathering a notch? Maybe you're looking for some guidance and resources to get started?
We've got you covered! The Well is partnering with Kol HaOt to provide a Haggadah (a guide) made specifically for Rosh Hashanah! Join us at Matt's apartment in the city for dinner as we dig in to the Haggadah, and adapt it to our own practices and interests. Consider it a test run for hosting your own Rosh Hashanah meal (or enhancing the one you always go to)!
For more information about the Haggadah, or to download a free copy for yourself, just click here: https://www.schusterman.org/rosh-hashanah-haggadah
