A special gathering for young families, sponsored by Sisterhood and led by Maria Simon.
Families with children ages 2-5 come once a month for an opportunity to experience Jewish life and learning in a fun-filled and active session. Families will engage in songs, stories, crafts and other activities that will excite the young children along with their parents. Holidays, celebrations and Jewish stories are the foundation for the program. This is a parent-participation, so please plan on at least one parent (or grandparent) being with your child during the program.
