Guerilla Minyan in SFC

The first Friday of every month, the Mission Minyan in San Francisco, an organic, creative, community-focused minyan, takes place. Here's info on this coming Shabbos, and visit their website at MissionMinyan.org to learn more:

Hello and welcome to January with the Mission Minyan! The Sisterhood is very, very over the whole latke/jelly donut/bad chocolate thing and we're sure you are too. Here's hoping for jicama slaw, tofu and steamed spinach this Friday night.

Here's what's in store for the minyan:

* * * * *
6:30 PM at the Women's Building
3543 18th St. between Guerrero and Valencia.
Kabbalat Shabbat this month is being sponsored by Rachel Sheinbein. We'll be in the Audre Lorde Room. (The Women's Building, by the way, is a co-ed place.)

We start Kabbalat Shabbat at 6:30 sharp, and we'll get to ma'ariv by 7:00. A kiddush will follow around 7:30, sponsored by Brian Garrick.

* * * * *

9:30 AM at the home of Andy and Emily Shapiro Katz
675 Guerrero, between 18th and 19th
Join us for Shabbat featuring Parshat Va'yigash. If you are interested in participating in the service by leyning, leading part of the service, hagba, etc, let David know ASAP at marhevka@calmail.berkeley.edu.

***NOTE: We need a minyan by 10 AM so please come on time. A minyan is 10 men and 10 women.***

1. BYO kippah Friday night, and share your siddur with someone. We only have 100 copies, and until we can get more published, we'd love it if you can make a new friend and share your copy. Alternately, consider bringing your own before Shabbat, you can leave it at the Women's Building front desk. And incidentally, if you know of a stack of siddurim needing a new home, get in touch with Mickey at heimlich@stanford.edu.

2. Save some extra spaces at your Shabbat Dinner. We expect 150 or more people Friday night! Your Shabbat hospitality would be most appreciated. If you can host some extra people at your meal let Jonathan know at Jonathan.Esensten@ucsf.edu so that he can make a match.

2. Host an overnight guest from outside the Mission area who needs a place to walk to and from services. If you have space at your place please let Noa know at noabar@yahoo.com.

3. Host a Shabbat lunch on Saturday. So far we have only one host and this will not be enough to host everyone who would like to share a Shabbat meal after services. Can you host a meal, sponsor a meal in someone else's home or perhaps team up with a friend? Please let Jonathan know at Jonathan.Esensten@ucsf.edu. This would be a wonderful gift to the community.

4. Make a donation, large or small, to help us pay for the room in which we davven, the meals we provide or a kiddush. Sponsoring davvening costs $110. Team up with 2 friends and it's 36 apiece!
