***Pop Up Shabbat has now been cancelled. We look forward to bringing the program back to Howard County next year.***

Looking for a way to celebrate Shabbat and get to know your Jewish neighbors? 

Community members are invited to Pop Up Shabbat, a fun, informal way to celebrate Shabbat and get to know your community. First, sign up a host or guest, and let us know a little bit about yourself. Hosts will receive Rosendorff's challah, wine, grape juice, and Shabbat candles to help welcome Shabbat. When you sign up, we'll match you with the perfect fit for your Shabbat dinner! 

Next, if you are signing up as a guest, register on our registration page. Please note: There is a guest fee of $18/family to help defray expenses.

We will be in touch with you in early March to let you know full arrangement details. 

Event Chair: Rebecca Feldman. For questions about Pop Up Shabbat, please contact Shauna Leavey
