Shabbot on the Road June 7

Congregation Beth Israel in Andover will hold its next “Shabbat on the Road” get-together on Friday, June 6, at 6:30 p.m. at a home in town.

Launched a year ago, the series offers more opportunity for congregants to observe Shabbat and to socialize with one another. The congenial gatherings are also open to non-members considering affiliation with the synagogue, which serves the Lowell, Chelmsford, Westford, Andover and Reading areas.

The get-togethers, which are held about once a month at the homes of members, start with Kabbalat Shabbat service, followed by a kosher Shabbat potluck dinner. To learn more or to make a reservation, call the synagogue office at 978-474-0540.

The program offers a wide range of activities, including swimming, sports, baking, arts and crafts, trips to local attractions and special visitors such as a karate master and magician. For more information, visit, email or call 978-470-2288.
