Art Show-Related Shabbat Dinner and Speaker

Friday, November 11
6:00 p.m.          Kabbalat Shabbat
7:15 p.m.           Dinner
8:15 p.m.           Speaker

Each year as part of our Art Show we have welcomed a guest speaker and found time to engage with our artists in discussion and commentary on the creative processes we see displayed. Barbara Loss will illustrate both the beauty and blight of the city of Bridgeport through her photographic essay. Her images of historic buildings, abandoned factories, residences, parks, gardens and community businesses are visual reminders of what Bridgeport was in previous decades. But they also serve as an impetus for renewal and for celebrating the progress that is happening now and the need to do more to restore and rejuvenate the old abandoned jewels, such as the Loews Poli and Majestic theaters.
Reservations are required for dinner ($20.00 per person) no later than Wednesday, November 9. Please contact Chris@cbibpt.org or 203-336-1858.
