Join us for a Shot of Torah or good food and good company at 6:30 pm, a Shabbat service in which we celebrate the ending and beginning anew of our annual cycle for reading the Torah at 7:00 pm, and stay after for dinner with 2239 or dancing and dessert with the broader WHC community. We can’t wait to celebrate the joy of Torah with all of you!
