This shabbat, 1 May,  you can leave behind pressures of work, noise of the city, and worries of the week-day world.  Come join Jewish Spirituality Australia for Shabbat Prayers and Songs, followed by our Bring-and-Share Veggie Shabbat Dinner and Food for Thought.    As it is International Workers’Day, we’ll consider intersections of Judaism and International Workers’ Day with a special focus on the Early American Yiddish Worker’s Movement.  With deep appreciation of those who came before us, we’ll meet in Palmyra at 6:00 pm.  All are welcome; contact me for exact address.  Hope to see  you soon!
