Shabbat Hospitality

Dear Young Israel families,
Our shul is one of the fastest growing Jewish communities in the world. As a result, Hollywood/Fort Laudersale is a desirable location and many families would love to come and see if this is the right fit for them. If you would like to be part of the mitzvah of hachnassat orchim, welcoming new guests into your home, please let us know by filling out this form below.

Would you be interested in housing a family over Shabbbat? (click yes or no) 
If so, how many beds/bedrooms do you have available for guests? 
Are you interested in hosting a family for Friday night dinner?
Are you interested in hosting a family for Shabbat lunch? 
Thank you in advance for partaking in this project!

Bat Mitzvah Program

The Young Israel, under the auspices of the Sisterhood, has a two-part Bat Mitzvah program for sixth-grade girls. Once a month, the girls meet on Shabbat afternoon at the home of Meira Davis, the wife of the Rabbi. One Sunday morning a month the girls and their mothers meet with Rebecca Weinstock, wife of the Rabbi, and Sara Frieberg Coordinator of Women's Engagement and participate in the Matan Mother-Daughter Bat Mitzvah program. The year of study culminates with a celebration at which every Bat Mitzvah makes a presentation about a special woman, an Eishet Chayil, whom she admires.
