These events are especially for families with children 1-5. Older and younger siblings are invited, too.

WHO: All are welcome, including interfaith, LGBTQIA, and multiracial families; people of color; single parents; low-income families, and grandparents. No Jewish knowledge or experience is necessary. Feel free to invite friends who might be interested!
