First Lab/Shul Shabbat of 2014 with special guest: Cantor George Mordechai

City Winery, 155 Varick St, NYC

Monthly Shabbat Mornings are Family-friendly musical worship events with Storah-style adult learning, creative kids programs, conversation, complimentary coffee, wine and potluck 

Crossing the Threshold: Our theme for this Shabbat is based on the chapters in Exodus that details the final moments in Egypt and the last Midnight before the Nation of Israel is born. According to legend only 1/5 left – the others stayed behind, afraid of the new reality. What about this narrative speaks to our personal and public lives today?
