Mishpacha (Family) Shabbat

Mishpacha Shabbat is a monthly opportunity for families with children ages 5-12 to join together for Shabbat dinner, singing, stories and activities.

We have expanded to include all families with young children – preschoolers and elementary school age children.

We begin by joining with the community for oneg (snacks) at 5:30 p.m, and then the first part of the service in the sanctuary at 6:00 p.m. After about 15-20 minutes, we leave for a short dinner and Shabbat activity for the children. We then return to the main service for the closing song (some weeks to be led by the Mishpacha kids).

Based on feedback from conversations with Mishpacha parents, this format will give you an opportunity to connect with the larger B’nai Israel community, and have some time with our community of young families. We are excited about it!

Any questions, you can email Rabbi Marion.
