The Hebrew expression Panim Hadashot-פנים חדשות, pronounced Paa-neem Chod-ah-shote, translates into English as ‘new face’ or ‘new faces’. It is a term that first appears in the Talmud and is associated in Judaism with hospitality, inclusiveness, and the Jewish Sabbath. Panim Hadashot is a new Shabbat centered community in Seattle.
