What is Oneg Shabbat?
Once a term we invite a speaker to join us as the community shares a meal together after the Shabbat Morning Service and explores a chosen topic for our education initiative: Oneg Shabbat. This summer we have had a series of Shabbat Lunch & Learn sessions which culminates in this larger Oneg Shabbat on Saturday 11th August.
Who is the speaker?
Our speaker will be Westminster Synagogue’s own Rabbi Benji Stanley, who will discuss: “What is the difference between pleasure and joy?” and “How can I bring more joy to my life and to my Judaism? “ - with a little help from Zadie Smith and the Talmud Tractate Brachot.
Who can come?
This session is for everyone! Friends and family members are all welcome to join too!
Do I need to bring anything?
Like a Chavurah Supper, we ask that guests bring a dish to add to our Shabbat Table. This can be a sweet or savoury dish that ideally serves 8-12 people. Dishes must be either fish or vegetarian and must not contain nuts (so if you're cooking, check the recipe, if you're buying check the label!).
Do I need to book in?
Yes! There is no charge to join us for the Oneg, but we have limited seating in the room. To ensure that we don't disappoint people, book in on the next page
