“Shabbat Salon”

At our home we are starting a weekly event inspired by the old social “Salons” in which folks would be invited to homes for refreshments, and to discuss the affairs of the day – social, philosophical, artistic, political, etc. Each Friday we plan to hold a “mini-salon” for us and two other people. We’ll begin by sharing our Humanistic Shabbat meal, and then retire to the “salon” for after-dinner drinks and, we hope, deep discussion. Seems like a good way to celebrate a “Humanistic Shabbat.” Try it at home! (Also named after a similar gathering in Israel in 2014, “A monthly Shabbat Salon for Sabras, Anglos and the new wave of French olim (immigrants to Israel) to connect, unify, promote Jewish peoplehood, and dissolve cultural barriers.”) ~ Will & Glyn
