Next Shabbat - Shabbat Dinner in French! - Dec 14

Après les Shabbats israélien, russe, mexicain, éthiopien...etc il ne manquait plus qu'un bon dîner de shabbat français. On parle évidemment de cuisine bien de "chez nous" : une bonne salade cuite, un poisson de shabbat, une chakchouka, des boulettes.... On organise donc un petit Shabbat français le vendredi 14 décembre à la Stanton Street Schul. Stanton est la plus vieille synagogue en activité downtown, un bijou d histoire au coeur du Lower East Side. Ce sera l'occasion de nous y réunir dans une ambiance bon enfant, chaleureuse et détendue...
