The unique experience scheduled for  Friday 28th of November has been designed to connect Jews who otherwise may not go to a service or have a Shabbat dinner on a Friday night and to introduce people of other faiths to the concept of Shabbat.

“The interest from last time we held this program was phenomenal – thankfully with the wonderful support of Waverley Council – we have been able to grow our numbers this time – everyone is welcome” Rabbi Doctor Dovid Slavin, Director of OBK said.

“For the first time ever, Tamarama beach will transform into a beautiful dinner setting for 200 people, complete with white table clothes, fairy lights and a full Shabbat Synagogue service”, says the Rabbi.

A Friday night service will welcome in the Shabbat and be followed by a beautiful kosher three- course meal prepared by celebrity chef, Tom Walton from Ready Steady Cook and The Bucket List.

According to OBK’s General Manager, Greg Fisher, Tom will add so much to the evening.

“Tom is a great friend of OBK – he has been so supportive of our communal work. I am very excited to see his culinary twist on the traditional Sabbath meal” Mr Fisher said.
