Jews Renew Their Support of Day of Rest
On Friday, March 5, 2010, members of Burbank’s Jewish community will gather from 6 to 9 p.m. at Burbank Temple Emanu El for a “Shabbat Across America” service and dinner, nationally organized by the National Jewish Outreach Program.
The event is to inspire the Jewish community to renew its’ interest in the fourth of the Ten Commandments—observing a weekly day of rest (Shabbat in Hebrew).
Burbank Temple Emanu El will be one of about 700 synagogues across the country that will open its doors to practicing and non-practicing Jews so they can join together in a traditional Shabbat service and festive meal.
Led by Rabbi Richard Flom, attendees will experience an interactive Friday night explanatory service and a traditional Shabbat dinner (complimentary) with all the rituals made relevant. Temple Emanu El has more than 100 members from Burbank’s Conservative Jewish community.
Burbank Temple Emanu El is located at 1302 N. Glenoaks Blvd., Burbank, CA 91504. For more information and reservations, call (818) 845-1734 or go to www.BTEE.org.
