Happy Thanksgiving to all! Hope you all enjoy the extended weekend with family. We, too, need a little downtime at Shabbos House and quality time with the kids. Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on all that we’re grateful for, indeed, we have so much to be grateful for!

See this post on “A Time for Travel – Nov 2015 for 5 recent trips we drove in and out in a 15-day span, visiting and celebrating with alumni. May we travel for Simchas when we can!

When everyone returns, we have two major events in the first week of December:

Save the date: December 1st, #GivingTuesday, for #40K24H online opportunity to help Shabbos House in a big way. Anyone can do it, we need as many friends as possible, stay tuned for more details.

#UAlbanyShabbat360 is Friday December 4th. Be sure to come and bring friends to the Campus Center Ballroom, 7pm on Friday Night for a grand Shabbat dinner. It’s a great #Hakhel opportunity, a first-time ever. Sign the Google form for the free t-shirt, and a chance to win Beats headphones. Help us spread the word!

The semester is slipping away, but not before Chanukah comes! Stay tuned for this year’s theme and listing of Menorah lightings and latke parties, and an 8-minute short that pivots in its last 30-seconds. We posted a preliminary schedule here, check back for updates and more details.

Thanks all for an amazingly full, rich and memorable Fall 2015 semester, and there’s still more ahead!
