Welcome to Lab/Shul, an artist-driven, everybody-friendly, God-optional, pop up, experimental community for sacred Jewish gatherings based in NYC and reaching the world.

Shabbat 2 GO! Lab/Shul DIY Shabbat Dinners at homes

Shabbat Dinner 2 go Lab/Shul’s SHABBAT 2 Go

Friday Night Dinners – Bring it Home

On Friday Night, November 7th,  join  Lab/Shul for our first Shabbat 2 Go of 5775: Shabbat dinners at local homes with old and new Lab/Shul friends.

Lab/Shul will provide soul food: your very own Dinner 2 Go placemat and inspirational conversation starters – you all bring what goes on the plate and in the glass.


We are growing! But let’s not lose intimacy. Besides – less is more and what’s better than fresh baked challah around a dinner party table? Smaller dinners enable Lab/Shul friends to celebrate Shabbat together in personal settings, getting to know each other better and delving deeper into what sacred time and space is all about.  


You! Our Shabbat 2 Go chair Dina Rose Friedman along with the Lab/Shul staff will be helping all of us to gather around tables across NYC and beyond. (Last year we had one in NJ!)

Where?Dinner Wburg 1

Across NY Metro Area zip codes, different hosts will open their homes to 8-10 people – a perfect number for great conversation. Dinners will be a mix of Lab/Shul co-creators and and new friends.
