The picnic is just the beginning of our 150th celebration. Through various upcoming events, we will bring our history to life and showcase our exciting new building renovations. This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to be a part of a unique celebration, reinforcing all that Shaare Emeth means to our Congregation and our community.

  • Enjoy music from HaShemesh, the Troublemakers and Mack Daddyz.
  • Free lunch of hamburgers, hot dogs and veggie burgers provided by MOSHE.
  • Activities will include a photo booth, balloon art, face painting, a magician, an ice cream truck and more!

Want to be a part of our Congregational photo? A drone photographer is coming at exactly 11:45 a.m. to take a large group photo of everyone. Don’t forget to wave!

Shaare Your Story

At the picnic on Sunday, take a few minutes to record your story! You’ll get a ride in our Shaare Shuttle from the picnic area to the main building, where a volunteer will audio record with you. Not able to make it to the picnic? Don’t worry! We still want to hear from you. Email Kim Oswalt at [email protected] for more information.
