Tot Shabbat (ages 5 and under, with parents/caregivers)

Tot Shabbat (ages 5 & under, with parents/caregivers) - on the first Fridays of each month, September through June - is an opportunity for our youngest children to socialize in a community and to engage with other Jewish families. This is also an excellent opportunity for our non-member families to get to know us and to become familiar with our family and children's programming.
