YAD Plans Poolside Family Shabbat

Shabbat is a time to spend with family and friends. It’s even nicer, if it includes a bit of swimming and a kosher dinner along with candle lighting, Kiddush and Motzi.

That’s just what you’ll find at the YAD (Young Adult Division) Annual Picnic and Poolside Family Shabbat on Friday, August 8, at 6 p.m. at the Jewish Community Center.

For those who choose, Rabbi Michael Wolk will lead a 15-minute, family-friendly Kabbalat Shabbat service in the family park at 6, and the Shabbat blessings will be said at 6:15.

There will be a kosher barbecue dinner with popsicles for dessert. A vegetarian option is available upon advance request.

Throughout the evening, the pool will remain open, and after 7 p.m., it will be open to picnic participants and their families only.

The cost of the evening, including dinner, is $15 for adults, $8 for children and $40 for a family that includes two adults and two children.

RSVP to Kristy at kbenefield@jewishlouisville.org or 238-2739.

Members of the event committee are Bekie Admony, Faina Kaplan, Charisse Levine and Carol Levitch. The YAD co-chairs are Keren Benabou and Ben Vaughan.
