Shabbat Passport: El Salvador
- This event has passed.
Travel with us to Central America! On October 23, NuRoots is teaming up with Jewtina y Co.—a grassroots, anti-racist organization exploring the Jewish-Latinx community and experience—to bring you a virtual Shabbat dinner celebrating Latin American Jewish community and highlighting El Salvador.
We’ll be joined by Jewtina’s Community Coordinator Kimmy Dueñas, who will share anecdotes from the small Salvadoran Jewish community (totaling no more than three hundred Jews today), and stories of her own family’s roots and immigration journey.
Our Shabbat will include a full traditional vegetarian Salvadoran meal from an L.A. restaurant and fresh challah, and we’ll send you off with a special challah recipe from the Dueñas family bakery for you to make the following week.Gather with us for a vibrant night of storytelling, music, rituals, and more!
Grab your seat by Sunday, October 18. Each ticket includes a generous individual meal, and we encourage you to purchase another if you plan to join with a roommate, partner, family member, or friend. Tickets are $20 each through October 16, and $30 thereafter, while supplies last. We will not be able to accommodate additional orders after 10/18.
Pick up your order on Friday, October 23in Culver City (11:30pm-1:00pm) or Sherman Oaks (12:30-1:30pm). Please contact us A.S.A.P. if you’d like to participate but cannot pick up within these windows. Exact locations will sent upon RSVP.
Join us on Zoom at 5:00 pm! We’ll hear stories from Jewish El Salvador, participate in Shabbat rituals together, and connect with other L.A. community members. Zoom will stay open for those who would like to stay at the virtual Shabbat table and have their meal together.
