Congregation B’nai Avraham together with Chabad of Brooklyn Heights presents…

The Shabbat Block Party – A unique initiative designed to unite all people living in Downtown Brooklyn and the surrounding neighborhoods.

Partygoers are asked to unplug and leave their electronics at home, giving social media the night off. These days every waking hour is spent with eyes glued to smartphones, we have lost the art of communication. The aim of the event, under the banner ‘REST IS COMING’, is to draw people away from social media; removing them from the distractions of daily life. It is about highlighting Shabbat as a day of rest and relaxation, focusing on family and friends without incessant buzzing, beeping and vibrating.

Come enjoy a delicious BBQ dinner, music by local Chassidic pop talent and special guest performance by Kiddie Korner students. The party is free of charge and all are invited to attend, regardless of affiliation and background.

Help us spread the word! We want to bombard the residents of Brooklyn with the message – REST IS COMING. Help us by placing flyers around your building, at your local gym and supermarket; spreading the word to family and friends; volunteering to hand out water bottles and balloons by the pier and by blasting the message through the streets of Brooklyn. We need your help!

Check out to sign up and for more information.
