Parent Hacks & Shabbat Snacks

Join us every Friday at 10 AM at various parks as we kick off Shabbat with song and cheer. Each week, a different guest speaker will join us to teach us a “parent hack” – something to make the lives of raising young children just a little bit easier.

While the kids enjoy their challah and cookies, the parents will be able to ask questions and hear from our weekly special guest.

After our circle time, stay and play on the playground with your new family friends as long as you’d like!
