This weekend at Tikkun v'Or, there is something for everyone!

TOT SHABBAT Friday, January 19, 6 - 7:30 pm 

Families with young children, people who like to be around young children, and the young at heart -- are all welcome! We'll begin with a veggie/dairy potluck dinner, followed by Shabbat singing and stories (with PJ Library books). 
We'll end with a dessert oneg, to share this time with folks attending the later Kabbalat Shabbat service (see below).

ONEG SHABBAT Friday, January 19 7-7:30 pm
Our dessert oneg will be from 7-7:30 pm, between the two services.

KABBALAT SHABBAT (Welcoming Shabbat) Friday, January 19, 
*We will begin with ONEG SHABBAT (7-7:30 pm), so as to share the time with families from the above Tot Shabbat program. 
The service itself will begin at 7:30, led by Beth Cohen, with musical assistance from Marne O'Shae and friends.
There will be a music jam after the service for anyone who wants to sing a bit together.
The Torah portion for the week is Bo (Exodus 10:1-13:16), which is about the plagues in Egypt and God's commandments about Passover.

RESCHEDULED FOR JAN 20: DINNER AND A MOVIE Saturday, January 20, dinner at 6:30, Film at 7 pm
Broken Wings: Raise your hand if you think families are simple. Anyone? No, families aren’t simple because single moms work too hard and the oldest kid has to watch the little ones, which doesn’t leave her anyplace to be truly herself, all while her brother gets to run around handing out nihilistic leaflets in a mouse costume. And that’s before tragedy strikes yet again. When is s the last time you saw a film that gets to the heart of what it means to be a family, and is touching and poignant and peppered with humor? Anyone? (2002, 87 minutes, Hebrew with English subtitles)
Food is served at 6:30 p.m. and films begin promptly at 7:00. Be sure to arrive early to maximize your schmooze time!
