What are Home Shabbat Experiences?  Members of the Panim Hadashot-New Faces team, led by Rabbi Dov Gartenberg, come to your home or community room to bring a unique Shabbat experience for you and your guests.  All you need to host is to gather together a small group of at least seven, including yourselves.  You can host a Home Shabbat Experience at any one of the three traditional Shabbat meal times, Friday evening, Saturday afternoon lunch, or Saturday evening with a Havdallah (Shabbat ending ritual).
