Alef-Bet Shabbat

For Babies, Toddlers, and Pre-schoolers

Rising kindergarteners and first graders are invited to enroll in Limmud b’Shabbat;  please contact

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. Meets regularly on the 2nd and 4th Shabbat mornings October through June. Alef-Bet Shabbat is always free of charge. Email Jules Rose at with any questions.
