First Fridays: Shabbat Worship for the Whole Family

We want to make sure your whole family can feel at home and connected on Shabbat and so this week we are kicking off First Fridays: Shabbat for the Whole Family. We want your family to feel comfortable coming as you are, worshiping as you are, and participating Jewishly, as you are!
 
5:00-5:15pm Shabbat 1-2-3 (ages 0-5) Bossen Family Library
5:00-6:00pm Pizza & Veggies (kid-friendly) Levin Social Hall
6:00pm Family Shabbat Services in Sanctuary

Shabbat 1-2-3 for our "littles" will include a Shabbat singalong, stories, and blessings aimed at those with a shorter attention span (service will take 15 minutes.) Come at 5:00 and stick around for a slice of pizza and some veggies.

Family Shabbat Services will be in the Sanctuary from 6-7 pm. This joyful service will include birthday and anniversary blessings under the chuppah, a Torah procession for kids, and plenty of familiar music. Any and all kids (and their adults) are welcome to come anytime between 5:00-6:00pm to grab a piece of pizza before 6pm services begin. (Little kids are invited to stay for Family Shabbat Services, but if their time runs out, it’s totally kosher to leave when you need to! )
