The community is invited to experience the holiness and warmth of Shabbat in the company of Lincoln Park Jewish Center members, and learn about the upcoming holiday of Chanukah with an esteemed rabbi presenting thoughts from his new book.
On Friday night, December 1, the shabbaton will start at LPJC, a Modern Orthodox synagogue, with Mincha services at 3:50 p.m., followed by candle lighting in the synagogue and Kabbalat Shabbat services. A traditional and delicious Shabbat dinner will follow, catered by GO Kosher of Mt. Kisco.
The Shabbat experience will be enhanced by the presence of Rabbi Aaron Goldscheider, who will be bringing to Yonkers his new book about Chanukah, “The Light That Unites.” Rabbi Goldscheider was the former rabbi of Mt. Kisco Hebrew Congregation but now lives in Jerusalem. He is also the author of “The Night That Unites Haggadah,” and served as coordinator of outreach training for semicha students at Yeshiva University’s Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary.
