Shabbos Dinners

The Mediation Center has embarked on a new project, thanks to the help of the Wasser Family. We are co-hosting Sabbath Dinners once a month at the Wasser home, welcoming diverse members of the community to experience what a Friday night dinner is like in a Crown Heights Jewish home. This gives residents of Crown Heights the opportunity to learn about each others backgrounds and traditions, promoting tolerance and unity. In February, the dinner boasted an attendance of 27 guests. Participants have described the welcoming attitude of the Wasser family the eagerness to teach and explain the rituals of the dinner. If you are interested in attending a dinner, please call the Mediation Center at 718-773-6886 for the next upcoming date.
