Israeli Folk Dancing

It’s time to have some simcha (joy) and to share some ruach (spirit) with some classic Israeli folk dancing, led by Mike Goldstein.

According to authoritative bubbemeises, it’s a double mitzvah to folk dance on Mothers’ Day following Yom Ha’Atzmaut!

We’ll be dancing on the wood floor of the Sanctuary, and non-grip soles should be worn for health. 

Please do not come if you are coughing, have a fever or are experiencing communicable health issues.

Shmoozing and warm-up at 6:45 pm.
