Havdalaween: Pumpkin Carving and Havdalah for Interfaith Couples (Boston)

October 23 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm EDT


Join our Boston Community Director, Molly Kazin Marshall, for an event to celebrate Havdalah (the ceremony that ends Shabbat) and Halloween! Both occasions are full of great symbolism, so together we will carve pumpkins and learn about the blessings and songs that we sing to end the Sabbath.

We’ll provide the pumpkins (1 per person!), some snacks and Havdalah materials, so all you have to do is join us at the park. This event is fully outdoors and under covered pavilions. We will have enough space to be socially distanced if you are not comfortable sharing a table with another couple. We do ask that all registrants be fully vaccinated and symptom-free in order to attend.

We take everyone’s health, safety, and comfort seriously. All event participants must be fully vaccinated. Please see the registration page for more details.

As Boston’s Community Manager for the Boston Innovation Hub, it’s Molly’s passion to connect interfaith couples in the Boston area to resources and tools unlocking aspects of Jewish culture and traditions. With a passion for food and drink, Molly enjoys visiting the numerous breweries in the Boston area, plus baking and cooking at home. Kugel is one of her favorite foods, and is one of the few ways she will tolerate raisins. She especially loves hearing her friends who have never had kugel try to pronounce the word.
