Temple Sinai to host ‘Shabbat-O-Rama’

Follow j. on   and 

In order to help Jews explore a more complete celebration of Shabbat, Tem-ple Sinai in Oakland will be hosting a “Shabbat-O-Rama” April 27-28.

Organizers at the Reform synagogue have come up with a variety of programming to appeal to all ages: music, prayer, games, puppet shows, food, a walk or bike ride around Lake Merritt, and talks on subjects such as travel, Israel and literature. All of the programs are free.

Rabbi Jacqueline Mates-Muchin will lead a program titled “Mikveh for Moderns” about ritual immersion. The group SoulAviv will weave folk, Motown, gospel and ’60s and ’70s music into the Saturday morning service.

The event begins Friday with a casual Israeli buffet dinner from 5:30 to 7 p.m. It concludes with a Saturday vegetarian potluck dinner and wine reception after Havdallah.

All programming will take place at Temple Sinai, 2808 Summit St., Oakland. A complete schedule and more information are available at http://www.oaklandsinai.org/shabbat-o-rama or (510) 451-3263.
