Shabbat Together

Shabbat Together

For families whose oldest child is entering kindergarten
Rabbi Miriam Philips, Director of Family Learning
Saturdays, 3:45 - 6:15 PM, Starting October 21, 2017

Imagine braiding a Havdalah* candle with your kids, while learning why Havdalah candles symbolize the diversity of Jewish families today, and then joining a circle for a beautiful musical celebration of Havdalah followed by dinner with your friends. Precious moments like these await families who participate in Shabbat Together.

Shabbat Together is for families whose oldest child is entering kindergarten. You’ll have an opportunity to celebrate Shabbat with your family, make family friends and eat dinner with your community. Shabbat Together will meet on Saturday afternoons and will include a lively song session, Havdalah, parallel adult and child learning time with our clergy and educators, and family project time. The family learning will be primarily experiential, based on creating meaningful projects together, driven in part by participants’ interests.

*Havdalah is a short, sweet ceremony that separates Shabbat from the rest of the week.
Those attending Shabbat Together do not need to enroll in Sunday Program.
