Who We Are

Our Mission: Revitalizing Shabbat Hospitality

Panim Hadashot- פנים חדשות (pronounced “Paw-neem Chaw-daw-shote) means “new faces” in Hebrew.  It is an old Jewish term associated with hospitality, the act of inviting new faces to share our joy.  Panim Hadashot-New Faces, fosters the practice of home Shabbat hospitality through a robust sharing of Jewish song and music, the exploration of vital Jewish teachings, the joy of gathering for a holy feast, and most of all the fellowship that comes from opening our doors to share our bounty.        Panim Hadashot-New Faces is a unique Jewish organization that brings Sabbath joy to home gatherings all over Seattle and the surrounding communities through our Heart of Shabbat Ensemble and our Shabbat Hosting Partnerships.
