Events generally in Northern California
Israeli folk dancers from all over the Bay Area dance the night away at Café Shalom’s Saturday party—a monthly tradition since the 1960s! We play a wonderful mix of oldies and the latest dances based on requests. Dancers of all ages are invited to join the fun on the second Saturday of every month.
$10.00 Adult, $5.00 Student
Cafe Shalom COVID-19 Guidelines
Cafe Shalom’s event will generally follow San Francisco country and California guidelines. Given our wide variety of age population – from people in their 20’s to others in their 90’s year young – we are extra careful about COVID and applied few minor modifications. Modifications were made after conversions with other dance classes and teachers who started to run their classes in person. We hope you understand.
Please make sure you either bring your vaccination card or have vaccination confirmation on your phone with the bar code. Vaccine verification will be checked at the door. Roster of attendees’ names will be taken at the door.
The only purpose of that roster is for contact tracing — in case we will need to notify people about unfortuate infection after the event.
It is also encouraged (not required) to test yourself ahead of the event. Knowing you had negative results using home kit or PCR would be reassuring and helpful for others. Testing will not be verified at the door although recommended for everyone’s peace of mind.
We encourage everyone to wear a mask so everyone on the floor will feel safer. Especially if you are immunocompromized. Remember – we wear masks not only for ourselves, we wear it for everyone else’s safety as well.
Food & snacks:
The kitchen is a Kosher kitchen and we are not permitted to use it. If you choose to bring something to share, please make it is already pre-cut or individually packaged so it will be ready to be served. Cupcakes are welcome, big sheet of cake to be cut will not be handled on site. Due to COVID we will not provide snacks (no popcorn, almonds or peanuts).
It is highly recommended to bring your own water bottle. You will be allowed to refill it using the kitchen faucet. If you do not have a water bottle you should be comfortable using a paper cup filled up from a pitcher of water.
