Shabbat BaBayit is Back—December 2!
Rachel Jury, Director of Jewish Studies
On Friday evening, December 2, all Bernard Zell families are invited to participate in our own community Shabbat celebration. We call this event Shabbat BaBayit—Shabbat in our homes. Shabbat BaBayit brings together families across the BZ community to gather together for Shabbat dinners happening simultaneously in different homes around Chicago.
We invite you to be a host or a guest during this meaningful evening as a community. Sign up below by Friday, November 18. All meals should be dairy or vegetarian to accommodate kashrut (kosher-Jewish dietary laws). The food can be homemade, ordered in from a restaurant or potluck style! No previous Shabbat experience required.

If you have any questions regarding the event, hosting or placement, please contact Rachel Jury at
