CLARK—Chocolate lovers who appreciate great music and possess a spiritual bent have reason to rejoice.
On Friday, Aug. 7, at 7 p.m. Temple Beth O’r/Beth Torah in Clark will host a Musical Chocolate Sabbath in what has been described as “the coming together of inspiring prayer and deliciously inspirational desserts.”
“Our aim is to create a truly meaningful prayer experience with a great deal of ruach or energetic spirit,” according to the temple’s Cantor Steven Stern.
“Folks will be singing and dancing in the aisles in celebration of welcoming the Sabbath. At the appropriate point in the service, we put down our instruments and with a cappella voices we enter the Sabbath day of rest in a more contemplative and peaceful mode. It is a very special experience whether you are used to celebrating the Sabbath or are new to synagogue services.”
Following the service, everyone is welcomed into the community room for socializing and a delicious assortment of chocolate treats and desserts. The community is welcome to join, and there will be a special section for singles to gather and meet. The synagogue is located at 111 Valley Road in Clark. For more information, call the temple office at 732 381-8403.
