Outreach Shabbat 

When: Fri., July 29, 6 p.m. 2011
Religious traditions are constantly striving for ways to engage their communities and stay relevant to new generations. That’s the idea behind Outreach Shabbats, a joint venture between Congregation Ohabai Sholom (better known as “The Temple”) and the Gordon Jewish Community Center. The evenings feature an informal Shabbat service in a nontraditional environment, along with music, food and camaraderie. Heck, when I was a kid, my parents had to drag me to synagogue. If services had been at a place as cool as Holland House, I would have been begging them to take me! I certainly don’t remember my temple serving a summer Sazerac or asparagus-and-ramp risotto. We’re going to go out on a limb and guess that Holland House’s popular Berkshire pork loin won’t be on the table, but regardless, the food will surely put the bar mitzvah buffets of my youth to shame. Everyone is welcome, regardless of affiliation. This is the second of three such events: The first Outreach Shabbat was in Hendersonville in June, and a third will take place Aug. 26 at the Mellow Mushroom in Franklin. For information, email
