Kosher Shabbat Dinners on Friday, August 3, and Friday, August 10, with the Nozyk Synagogue
We are excited to announce that this year we will hold the dinners with Rabbi Schudrich’s community from the historic Nozyk Synagogue. The Glatt Kosher meals will be catered by Mr. Pinchas Etzioni of Kosher Delight, Warsaw, and will be held with the Nozyk Synagogue community, led by Rabbi Michael Schudrich, Chief Rabbi of Poland. The dinners will follow Kabbalat Shabbat services at this Orthodox synagogue, to which the entire IAJGS conference assembly is invited.
The meals are served family style and typically include many vegan and fish (typically gefilte fish) options in the early courses. Allergies will be accommodated to the best of their ability, and they do try to be helpful.
The group Shabbat dinners will be held at the Kosher Delight Restaurant at Grzybowska 2 which is in Building A of this address. It is about a 4 minute walk from the Nozyk Synagogue. The restaurant is on the second floor of this building, which is entered from the back. There are stairs and an elevator with a guard.
Kabbalat Shabbat Services begin at 8:00 pm on August 3 and at 7:50 pm on August 10. Dinner will be served approximately 45 minutes later, but sometime between 8:30 pm and 9:00 pm. Shachrit Services each Saturday will begin at 9:00 am. Lunch will be held in a room at the Nozyk Synagogue at approximately noon on each Shabbat.
Dinners purchased through the Nozyk office (rather than our Registration System) and all lunches are being subsidized by the Warsaw Jewish Community (the “Gmina” in Polish) and a light breakfast is offered to the weekday morning minyan attendees. And we have a “good problem”: we have overwhelmed the community with our large numbers. Therefore, donations to the gmina would be very much appreciated if you happen to be in the position to make a contribution to them on a day that is not Shabbat.
