Recurring Programming

Alef-Bet Shabbat

Saturdays, 11:45 a.m. to 12:30p.m.

Alef-Bet Shabbat is offered two Saturdays a month during Limmud b’Shabbat.

This interactive service for 0-5-year-olds features music with our fabulous early childhood songleader, Stephen Figurasmith (they/them).

Dance, cuddle, listen to stories, and observe Shabbat in an engaging and meaningful way. Children can choose to just watch or join right in—whatever feels right.

Upcoming Alef-Bet Shabbat dates: April 13 & 27, May 11 & 18, June 8
