1. Summer BBQ

Sunday, August 29   3 - 8 pm

Come over and enjoy a good ole fashoined backyard BBQ. We'll be hanging
out during the afternoon and cooking up Hebrew National hotdogs and Empire
Kosher chicken. Please plan on bringing something to share, such as a salad,
a side dish, or something for the grill. (If you do plan on bringing meat, please
make sure it's kosher.) Hope you'll join us to celebrate the end of summer!

Wednesday, July 21 at 6:30pm

Left at Albuquerque, 803 State Street
There's nothing like a refreshing drink after a long day of work! So, come meet
up with the Connection crew at the bar at Left at Albuqueque. RSVP's are
appreciated so we can try to pull enough chairs together. Contact Debbie at
687-8825 or smilovitzdeb@yahoo.com by Tuesday July 20. (It's no problem,
though, if you just decide to be spontaneous and show up....


3. Havdalah Potluck at Leadbetter Beach

Saturday, July 10 at 6pm
Leadbetter Beach, downtown Santa Barbara
Please join us for a potluck dinner at Leadbetter's picnic area, followed by the
Havdalah service. This will be an enjoyable evening, filled with food, friendship
and spirituality. Rabbi Zev Schwarz will be joining us for this event and will
lead in Havdalah, the short service that marks the end of Shabbat. This event
is always a crowd pleaser, as it allows us locals to enjoy the beautiful Santa
Barbara beachfront. Feel free to bring a Frisbee, volleyball, or anything you enjoy
doing at the beach, along with your vegetarian potluck dish. And be sure to
bring a blanket or jacket for later on, as it does get chilly after the sun sets.
To find us at the beach, look for the blue and white balloons. Please let us
know if you will be joining us (so we can make sure to have enough food!)
RSVP to Becca at 681-1334 or becca@beccalicha.com by Friday, July 9.
