Avodat Lev (Service of the Heart) is designed to help us connect to ourselves, each other and to that which connects us all. No Hebrew language skills or any other experience of any kind is necessary. Join us at 10am for the service and stay for a potluck vegetarian brunch.

community under the full moon over San Pablo. We'll celebrate havdallah (the short, musical ceremony that separates Shabbat from the rest of the week) with a bonfire, fresh-popped organic popcorn, farm-brewed chai and, of course, an 80s Dance Party spun by Adam Berman aka DJ Donuts.


Bring a treat for our traditional dessert potluck (veggie only), warm clothes and your favorite mug. Come at 7pm for a drink and a shmooze. We'll make havdallah around 8pm and continue the evening with more music and dancing.


Gather: 7pm

Bonfire: 8pm

Advance tickets: sliding scale of $10-$20*
