San Francisco Shorts Tawonga planning Shabbat potluck

The "Shabbat Stroll" starts at 7:00 p.m. The Pied Piper-like promenade will allow campers to join their singing, guitar-playing leaders in a walk across the field, around the lake and through the trees en route to the social hall for a 7:30 p.m. potluck dinner.

Dancing to camp and Israeli folk songs will follow at 8.

On Friday, Feb. 6, more than 50 families new and old to Camp Tawonga braved torrential rains to arrive at the Berkeley-Richmond Jewish Community Center for the first Shabbat Reunion. Kids reunited with their summertime friends and families dined with neighborhood families.

Free Camp Tawonga CDs and song sheets were distributed, compliments of the Koret and Maisin foundations.

For Feb. 27 reservations, call (415) 543-0234.
