Mark your calendars for a pre-Shabbat Lag B’ Omer party at Chabad House (1866 S. 120th Street) on Friday, April 30 from 4-7 p.m.
Drive by and enjoy complementary s’mores and cookies and lively music. Be sure to grab a challah for yourself and for a friend! Fresh off the grill kosher barbecue will be available for purchase - burgers ($5), hotdogs ($3), corn on the cob, water or soda all $1 each.
“While we may not be able to come together as fully as we’d like, Lag B’ Omer is the perfect holiday for social distancing. An outdoor barbecue and program that allows a special outing for those those who would like to join in but prefer to remain in their own cars or distanced to their comfort,” explains Shani Katzman of Omaha Chabad.
At 5:30 p.m., Chabad will honor and acknowledge their dedicated team of challah delivery volunteers Jeremy & Isabella Wright, Howard Kutler and Richard Leibovitz.
“These individuals have delivered ‘challah hugs’ to community members every week throughout the pandemic,” explains Katzman. “It was a rough year and with isolation, it could become very lonely. Challah and Shabbat To-Go kit deliveries have been something people could count on on Fridays. Delivered with a friendly smile, these volunteers have shown great chesed and have ensured that some of our most isolated friends have contact with others in the community. Lag B’Omer is traditionally a day of Jewish unity, a coming together as one. We are responsible for- and incomplete without — each other. What better day to recognize those who serve the community and help bring people together!?”
