Ashreinu Havdalah

  • MaTovu 4200 Blaine Avenue St. Louis, MO, 63110 United States (map)

Mark the week's beginning with Ashreinu, an egalitarian kehilla (community) that gathers for spirited davening (prayer), inspired learning, and Jewish ritual.

Enjoy a tasty seudah shlishit, the third (lighter) meal of Shabbat. Learn and sing some slow, traditional songs about the beauty of Shabbat and our sadness as it draws to a close. We’ll end with Havdalah, the ceremony that separates Shabbat from the rest of the week. No previous experience required!

Saturday, July 27

8:00 pm / Arriving + Greeting + Noshing

We'll provide: vegetarian treats, drinks (alcoholic & non-), B'kol Echad benchers (songbooks), (courtesy of Congregation Bnai Amoona) to facilitate soul-opening seudah shlishit singing, and a havdalah ceremony.

Please bring, as you feel comfortable: a seudah shlishit song to share / a friend or two / a drum / a desire to sing in a collective format. You are also welcome to contribute a beverage or vegetarian treat to our bounty.
