HAVDALLAH (WITH DINNER)
Join together for one of the highlights of the LIMMUD NZ weekend in a special ceremony. Havdallah is Hebrew for “separation” and it marks the symbolic end of Sabbath (and Jewish holidays) and ushers in the new week. The ritual involves lighting a special multiwicked candle with several wicks, blessing a cup of wine, smelling sweet spices, singing and dancing. This will be followed by dinner.
