On Friday, Nov. 18, Isaac M. Wise Temple will host a very special Shabbat evening for families with camp-age children.
At 6:15 p.m., participants will gather for a very relaxed and informal “camp” style Shabbat service. The service will be led by Rabbi Ilana Baden with Sam Pollak as the featured song leader and Rabbi Mark Covitz as the featured storyteller.
In addition to growing up at Wise Temple, Sam has been the head song leader for Goldman Union Camp Institute (GUCI) for the past several years, and is currently serving as Temple intern at Temple Beth Shalom near Columbus, Ohio. Rabbi Mark Covitz just completed his first summer as the new director of GUCI, although he has spent decades of seasons at the camp.
Following the service, there will be an opportunity to join Rabbi Covitz for a complimentary dinner, where he can talk more specifically about the GUCI experience, which has programs for children entering 3rd through 10th grade.
Please note, the service will be a family-friendly service open to any and all members and guests who wish to enjoy a different type of service. Reservations are needed in order to attend dinner. For more information, please contact Wise Temple’s office.
