Family Shabbat Service and Dinner

We would love for you to join us for our monthly Shabbat service and dinner. At 5:45pm families with babies to kindergarten age will join Rabbi Donni Aaron and Max Handelman for a musical and story-filled service. Families with older elementary school students will gather with Rabbi David Russo for a spirited and extended Kabbalat Shabbat (Welcoming Shabbat) service. The services will each end at 6:30pm, followed by a delicious Shabbat dinner. After that, the gym will be open for some play time.
