Unwind from your week with family fun.

Enjoy songs, stories, candlelighting, grape juice and challah as we celebrate Shabbat together. We’ll provide dinner and dessert while you enjoy special time with your family. Geared to families with young children ages 1-8, but everyone is welcome.

(Bernard Weinger JCC: Enjoy open gym or swim – bring a bathing suit and towel.)

Upcoming Dates

Songs and celebration on a Saturday afternoon.

Each got shabbat? includes fun, family friendly activities. Invite your friends and join in the fun.

Themed crafts, snacks, interactive entertainment, song sessions and Havdalah (a great way to end Shabbat, and welcome a new week together as a community) are all part of our got shabbat? experience.

  • Designed for families with 3 to 8 year-olds.
  • Various Saturday afternoons in a JCC, synagogue or local venue near you
  • Walk-ins welcome

Upcoming Dates

SENSE-ational Shabbat!

One of the ways toddlers learn about the world around them is by exploring with their senses. In this interactive adult/child class, you and your little one will see, hear, smell, touch and taste the beauty of Shabbat through play activities designed to stimulate all five senses! Leave each of the six classes with ideas to create sensory-rich experiences at home, too!

For toddlers 12-24 months, with a caregiver
$80 for six sessions
