Friday Night Shabbat

Niggun service, dinner, and discussion - Join with our special House Band for an evening of middle eastern rhythms, soulful melodies and mindfulness teachings followed by dinner and a discussion with our partners at PATH.


Last year LA voters approved two ballot measures focused on easing our housing crisis.  With Proposition HHH we approved a $1.2 million bond measure for the construction of affordable housing, and with Measure H we approved a 1/4 cent sales tax to provide wrap-around services to help keep formerly homeless Angeleno in their homes.  Join us for a panel discussion with our partners at PATH to learn about the impact of both initiatives and how we can continue to address the Los Angeles housing and homeless crisis.
