Our Mission: Revitalizing Shabbat Hospitality

Panim Hadashot- New Faces (pronounced Paw-neem Chaw-daw-shote) literally means New Face or New Faces” in Hebrew.  It is an old Jewish term associated with hospitality, the act of inviting new faces to share our joy over a Sabbath or Festival meal.  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.
