Fri. night Zoo Minyan - April 16

Now we are free! As we emerge from Pesach, make plans to join Zoo Minyan Fri. night, April 16, for a tune filled joyful Erev Shabbat.

We'll have spirited songful Davening and delicious dinner (catered entrees from Sienna's). This time we'll be in Cleveland Park, at the home of super-hosts Rabbi Gilah Langner & David Dreilich. (Zoo Minyan will be davenning there, and then we'll combine for dinner with Ruach Minyan who will arrive after their separate davenning.)
We're 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, April 16
Shmoozing plus set-up: 6:15pm
Rockin' Kabbalat Shabbat -- 6:45pm sharp!
Followed by Ma'ariv, dinner, singing, drashing, more shmoozing....

At the home of Rabbi Gilah Langner & David Dreilich

For directions, check your Zoo mail, or email

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 can:
  1. Contribute to the kitty to help pay for the entree AND / OR
  2. Bring a side dish or salad 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

This week, Challah for Shabbos!
Next week, Zoo Minyan!
Shavua Tov!!
