Come Friday, we all need a home cooked meal and a bit of shal-OM-y peace
So join EntryPointDC’s Shabbat Clusters for a once a month stress release
A place to go that’s welcoming where we can feel like nothing’s wrong
Even though work can sometimes be tough and weeks seem very long

Meet a new crew or sign up with your friend squad or bae if that is more your deal
Clusters will meet at someone’s home or a local restaurant for a potluck Shabbat meal
Your group will choose the last three months of dates, but the first three are all set
You can get money to cover meal costs so the day-of there will be no need to sweat

Clusters can be grouped by interest, age, single or taken, at any location in the DMV
Some previous interests have been 30 somethings, outdoors, social justice, art, and foodies
You can be a coordinator, help host, or, of course, simply participate
Coordinators will train to be leaders, create community and make each cluster great

Beyond building meaningful relationships, bonding, and dining in your cluster over the next season
You’ll get discounts to EntryPointDC events when you bring your new friends which is another great reason
To join Shabbat Clusters, get involved with the greater DC Jewish Community and EntryPoint
Which puts on programs like holiday celebrations, comedy shows, and service days that never disappoint

Shabbat Clusters is a program of good vibes, good people, and good food
So don’t forget to enroll by March 22nd, before registration will conclude
And we hope to see you for a kick-off dinner on March 31st
Which will just be the beginning of your Shabbat Clusters thirst

Registration for Spring 2017 Shabbat Clusters closes Wednesday, March 22nd. The cluster season begins with an optional Kick-Off Shabbat Dinner for all participants on Friday, March 31st at the Edlavitch DCJCC. The Spring 2017 season is from April-September and the next season starts in Fall 2017.
