Get Around On Shabbos

Wouldn’t it be nice to meet more of the community, rather than eating at the same Shabbos table again and again? Or at least have Shabbos out of the apartment around a family table like back home?

Chaya Wolf will gladly get you and your friends in touch with gracious hosts who look forward to greeting new faces at their shabbos table!
Contact Chaya (any week by Wednesday evening) and have your plans arranged for you: or 646-404-2530
