Residents at Oakmonte Village Siena celebrate Shabbat
July 1, 2022
The Jewish Pavilion hosted Shabbat services at Oakmonte Village Siena. They were led by Randi Cunningham, a long-time volunteer, and consisted of singing, prayers, and challah.
Cunningham started by passing out Shabbat pamphlets containing prayers and led the six residents sitting around the table in prayer to light the candles.
The residents joined as Cunningham led them in singing prayers such as the Aleynu and Shema, even harmonizing during parts of the prayers.
After prayers were sung the residents enjoyed grape juice and challah.
The Jewish Pavilion hosts Shabbat services twice a month, normally on the 2nd and 4th Friday.
