Shabbat on the Beach
Join us for ‘Shabbat on the Beach’ along with songs, sunsets and s’mores every Friday evening at Main Beach!
Bring a blanket and picnic dinner and enjoy Shabbat on the Beach as you watch the sun dip below the horizon of beautiful Main Beach in East Hampton. Jewish Center of the Hamptons welcomes everyone, young and old, regardless of faith, to this lively, spiritual event. Following the service, led by Rabbi Joshua Franklin and Cantor/Rabbi Debra Stein, we invite you to stay for the bonfire and s’mores. A welcoming community of well over a hundred will gather every Friday night from Memorial Day to Labor Day to celebrate this special day.
Shabbat is viewed as the pinnacle of the creation of the universe. Its observance can be seen as a reminder of the purposefulness of the world and the role of human beings in it.
It is portrayed in Jewish liturgy, song and story as a day of joy. Please join us for this special Jewish Center of the Hamptons tradition. There is no charge for attending this event.
Fresh challah, baked by Ludlow farms, will be available for purchase on the beach.
