Shabbat and Holiday Celebrations for Young Children
Do you have young children in your life?
Want to share lively, engaging Jewish experiences with them in an open and diverse environment?
Join other families to celebrate at Jewish Gateways holiday events and Shabbat gatherings throughout the year, led by Rabbi Bridget Wynne and musician Joel Siegel.
We enjoy music, stories, movement, hands-on projects, yummy treats, and more in a relaxed environment, just right for young children and for families to connect with one another.
