The last Fri. night Zoo Minyan of summer - July 24

Come for a beautiful evening!

This is our last Fri. night Zoo Minyan of the summer, as we're on an "every 6 weeks" schedule for Fri nights. (By the time the next one rolls around it will be almost the Chaggim!) So come for sweet summer Erev Shabbat.

We'll have spirited songful Davening and delicious dinner (catered entrees from Sienna's). This week we'll be in Woodley Park, at the home of Deborah & Shalom. We're still seeking davenning leaders, and there's always room for davenning treats, special niggunim, etc., just write back to to volunteer.

Please make a donation toward dinner and/or bring a potluck contribution (veggie/dairy) -- details below.

The Details:
This Friday night, July 24th
Shmoozing plus set-up: 6:30pm
Rockin' Kabbalat Shabbat -- 7:00pm sharp!
Followed by Ma'ariv, dinner, singing, drashing, more shmoozing....

At the home of Deborah Hittleman Flank and Shalom Flank. For directions, check your Zoo mail, or email per below.

+++ ABOUT DINNER (it's not just a pot-luck!)

We will have main courses from Siena's! Kosher, lots of dairy plus at
least one non-dairy option, all veggie, and all yummy! Vegetable
lasagna, eggplant parmesan -- send in your requests

For shabbat dinner, the community provides some hearty entrees. You
1) Contribute to the kitty to help pay for the entree
2) Bring a side dish, salad, drink, or desert as a dairy / veggie pot-luck contribution.

Don't worry about whether your kitchen is kosher (or “kosher enough”), everyone gets to contribute. But please be prepared to explain what's in your dish, to help people avoid allergy or kashrut issues.

If you're worried about whether you'll be able to eat at Zoo Minyan, there is always a critical mass of pot-luck contributions with a heksher or cooked in someone's heksher-only kitchen. There are always hekshered challot and grape juice, plus the entree is hekshered. And you'll get to know people as you ask who brought which dish. Questions? Ideas? Want to help? Need the address or directions? Write back to Shabbos is coming!

!!! NEXT ZOO -------
And the next time Zoo Minyan meets will be Shabbat Shoftim --right after Rosh Chodesh Elul-- Saturday morning, August 22nd, when folks have returned from NHC Summer Institute. Grab your leyning slot early, at
