Shamati keeps the party rocking as they seamlessly transition from Bluegrass to Motown and Classic Rock to Latin Funk.  A Bay Area super group, their members have played in Edward Sharpe, Melvin Seals and JGB, La Misa Negra, China Cats, Antioquia and more. Plus they got some great Jewish stuff up their sleeve too!

Wellness and Relaxation


Wellness and Relaxation


Recharge by unplugging

With your computers and work at home, take some time that's truly for you. Take a yoga class in the morning or go on a forest hike in the afternoon. Find some shade, take a nap and get the rest you deserve.

Not your grandmother's Shabbat

There's no point in doing it, if it's not going to mean something to you. Our community Shabbat and Havdallah programs are playful, personal and filled with music and laughter. This year we'll be partnering with ReBoot to bring some innovative programs that explore how to make Jewish traditions your own.
