Cherokee Park Big Rock
The highlight of the night is the beautiful Havdalah celebration which will be led by our very own Young Adult Division and Hillel Director Benji Berlow and other community leaders. The word Havdalah means to differentiate, to distinguish. The entire ceremony is to distinguish between Shabbat that we just experienced and the week that we are about to enter, both as an existence in time and as a feeling of existence. Our senses are ignited by the taste of wine, the smell of spices and vision of the candles. We are reminded to distinguish our dark moments from the moments filled with light. There will be family friendly activities following the ceremony.
The Louisville Shabbat Project-Louisville is presented by The J and the Jewish Federation of Louisville with generous support from the Jewish Heritage Fund for Excellence.
