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.

During the pandemic we are holding virtual holiday celebrations. We enjoy music, stories, movement, and hands-on projects in a relaxed environment, just right for young children and their families.
