We started out in 2013 as Shabbat 100, an annual community Shabbat dinner with the intention to gather 100 Jews from around the Upstate to celebrate Shabbat together.
The program has seen much success and growth and this year we are aiming for Shabbat 200.
The program features a spirited Shabbat dinner complete with a gourmet, four-course Shabbat dinner, including homemade challah, gefilte fish, mouth-watering matzah-ball soup, kugel and many other delicious traditional Shabbat foods, all cooked and baked by Rebbetzin Musie Kesselman. Your Jewish taste buds will surely be nurtured!
Inspired by the beauty of the sacred mitzvah of observing the holy day of Shabbat, our mission is to give every Jew in Greenville and the Upstate, regardless of their background or level of observance, an experience where they can celebrate Shabbat dinner in a welcoming environment with family and community.
In the Midrash it says, that at the end of the six days of creation, the only thing the world was missing was "menucha" - "rest", and as Shabbat came, along came with it the gift of rest.
It is a time we can rest from the mundane and celebrate our beautiful and rich heritage.
