The first-ever all-school Shabbat dinner potluck will be hosted by the Lab Jewish Affinity Group and the U-High Jewish Students’ Association on Jan. 25 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in Café Lab.

The potluck will uphold the traditions of the weekly Jewish holiday with lit candles, grape juice, blessings and traditional Jewish foods such as challah bread.

“The idea for an all-school Shabbat dinner started when two Jewish moms in ESH realized that there wasn’t a strong Jewish group at Lab,” Nathan Appelbaum, JSA president, said. “The event is partially to showcase our community.”

All students regardless of their age or faith are invited and encouraged to come to the event.

“My hope is that the event will be full of people, joyous, and fun,” JSA adviser Susan Shapiro, a U-High history teacher, said.
