Special Note to All:
During the next few months, our FVJN monthly Shabbat Evenings will take on a 
different look. 
In lieu of Shabbat services, we will say the blessings over the Shabbat candles, 
the motzi and the kiddish, and will enjoy a social Shabbat potluck, together.
These monthly Shabbat gatherings offer great opportunities for adult and children 
of all ages to make new friends and visit with others you already know. The 
evenings can also include a variety of other pursuits, depending on what you 
choose to bring.
Play an instrument? Bring it along! Jewish-related topics you would like to discuss, 
as well as Ideas for FVJN you would like to share, are all welcome, too.
Please join us for these special community Shabbat evenings!
