Speechless: New Year, New You, New Us

Join us as we welcome Shabbat with wordless song, silent contemplation, quality food and excellent company!

We're excited to start the New Year off with something radically different -- a prayer experience that literally has no words (lai lai lai, nai nai nai, dai dai dai, and quiet breathing exclusively)! 

This is the perfect experience for music lovers, for those who find that the words sometimes get in the way (especially when they say things we don't believe), for those who struggle with Hebrew, for those who want to bring some intention to 2019, and for those excited about being part of something that's just plain different! 

6:30pm: Cocktails and Mocktails
7pm: Get our wordless sing/pray on 
Then, dinner!

WHAT TO EXPECT:
- Young adult crowd
- A wordless Shabbat service experience 
- Delicious food and drink 
- Quality company 

Subsidized cost of only $12/pp due to the generosity of donors

Ta'im Detroit

Ta'im Detroit

This event is now sold out.

We're exploring how immigration from all around the world has impacted Israeli cuisine through a 10-course meal (with wine pairings)! While food is the heart of this event, this dinner is about celebrating culture, history, peoplehood and the reality that Israeli cuisine is a collective (and continuously evolving) creation.

This meal is being thoughtfully sourced with local ingredients, is pescatarian (fish, eggs and cheese included - but no meat!) and prepared kosher style.

Proudly presented by Flavors of Coexistence with support from OneTable, The Well, and NEXTGen Detroit

Flavors of Coexistence is a bridge-building dining initiative that uses multisensory learning, principles of gastrodiplomacy, and food storytelling to enhance participants' understanding of shared culture between diverse communities living in the same region.

About Chef Aliza Grayevsky: Aliza Grayevsky is an eighth generation Jerusalemite. Raised in the kitchens of Jerusalem, she grew up cooking and eating everything the city's streets and markets had to offer. Growing up in Jerusalem makes her intimately familiar with Jerusalem's culinary collision of flavors and cultures. It is that "best of all worlds" touch that Aliza brings to her cooking.
