Throughout the year, Houston Congregation for Reform Judaism plans a variety of special Shabbat programs. Here are just four of them!
Simchat Torah Celebration with Klezmer Concert
Celebrate Torah like never before and enjoy an evening of music and joy featuring an amazing Klezmer band, KOSHER KLEZMER. The concert is during the oneg after services.
Entering its 7th year in 2020, our Deli Shabbos is a congregational favorite. We welcome Ziggy Gruber (owner of Kenny & Ziggy’s) to the pulpit. The theme of the 2019 Deli Shabbos experience was the History and Future of the Deli. Ziggy prepared a very special Shabbat Dinner followed by a sermon during our Shabbat Service. The menu included Chopped liver served with bagel chips, matzo ball soup, hot deli station with corned beef, pastrami and turkey, potato salad, cole slaw, kale salad, pickle tray, franks in a blanket and mini potato knishes.
We celebrate our observance of Chanukah on Shabbat every year. Families are invited to light menorahs on the bimah. Following services, latkes and apple sauce are the highlight of the evening at our latke oneg.
Dress in costume for our Purim Shabbat! This holiday observance includes a megillah reading and hamantashen for all.
