Family Shabbat Service & Dinner

1st Shabbat Evening of the month

Family Friday Kabbalat Shabbat Service & Dinner at 5:45PM

Families with babies to kindergarten age will join Rabbi Donni Aaron & Max Handelman for a musical, story-filled service. Older school students will gather with Rabbi David Russo for a spirited Kabbalat Shabbat (Welcoming Shabbat) service. Each service ends at 6:30pm, followed by a delicious Shabbat dinner and then playtime in our gym for the kids. As always – our fabulous teen educators will be sharing story books with kids in small groups by age before dessert and play time in the gym.
