Chabad at the Beaches to offer Shabbat service and dinner in Atlantic Beach


Chabad at the Beaches is again offering a Shabbat service and dinner in Atlantic Beach in addition to its regular service in Ponte Vedra Beach.

“After two joyful and warm Shabbat dinners in Atlantic Beach, we are thrilled to host a third,” said Leah Kurinsky, co-director of Chabad at the Beaches. “We are so excited to spend Shabbat with old friends and welcome the opportunity to make new ones.”

The 25-minute service will take place Feb. 24 at 6 p.m. in the Adele Grage Cultural Center, located at 716 Ocean Blvd. in Atlantic Beach. The Shabbat dinner will begin at 6:30 p.m., replete with prayer, a four-course meal, singing and Shabbat fun led by Rabbi Nochum Kurinsky and Leah Kurinsky. As with all Chabad events, there is no membership or affiliation necessary to join. Reservations are required and can be made via the synagogue’s website:

Rabbi Eli and Esther Wilansky will lead Chabad at the Beaches’ regular, weekly Shabbat service and dinner in Ponte Vedra Beach, which is held at its Aaron and Blanche Scharf Center for Jewish Life.

There is no cost for either event. However, donations are appreciated and can be made via the organization’s website or by mail. Sponsorships are available for $100, $180 and $360. For more information, please call 904-543-9301, email or visit the synagogue’s website.
