Spring Davenning on Spring Pl.

Spring Has Sprung! Chodesh Aviv (the first month of the year, also known as Nissan) starts on Wednesday night. Come celebrate the first Shabbat of spring at Zoo Minyan this Friday night.

We'll have spirited songful Davening and delicious dinner (catered entrees from Sienna's). We're lucky to be hosted this week by Avodah House on Spring Pl, just off 16th Street. We're mostly set for davenning (thanks Zach, thanks Sara), but there's always room for davenning treats, a 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, March 28th
Shmoozing plus set-up: 6pm
Rockin' Kabbalat Shabbat -- 6:30pm sharp!
Followed by Ma'ariv, dinner, singing, drashing, more shmoozing....

+++ 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!

And don't forget about *next* Shabbos, when we'll celebrate Shabbat Ha-
Gadol (the really big shabbos) together on Saturday morning, April
4th. Grab your leyning slot early, at
