"Shabbat On Wheels" is a new BIJC program for those interested in exploring the progressive and innovative traditional Jewish scene in the San Francisco Bay Area. Every few months, we will organize a group to meet at BIJC and travel to a synagogue somewhere in the bay area for services. Come join us as we experience many of the countless ways that people live their Judaism on Friday nights!
