Cincinnati-Style Shabbat at Plum Street Temple

On Friday, November 9, 2012, more than 200 Jewish young professionals from Cincinnati and around the region took part in Access’ Cincinnati-Style Shabbat. This event was the first in our new Got Shabbat series, The United States of Shabbat, which will feature the unique culture and cuisine of different US cities several times throughout the year. Of course we felt it only right that we start with our own amazing city, and what could be a more perfect venue in which to showcase the best of what Cincinnati has to offer than the magnificent Plum Street Temple? Rabbi Kamrass and Wise Temple welcomed us in with open arms and we are grateful to have had the opportunity to introduce our constituents to one of our city’s and the world’s Jewish treasures.

The evening began with an optional service, led by Rabbi Kamrass and concluded with a brief history of Plum Street Temple and its architecture. Guests were also treated to a performance by Wise Temple’s popular Shir Chadash Band. The service was the perfect length and the live music helped set just the right tone. Of course, the sanctuary provided a spectacular backdrop to the evening, which also featured a sit down Shabbat dinner in the Temple’s social hall, complete with food from some of Cincinnati’s most iconic eateries. Afterward most of the guests headed over to the Blue Wisp where Rachel P had arranged for private space and drink specials for the group.
