Havdalah Series

Start the evening with a lively ceremony to end Shabbat, called Havadalah, filled with music and singing, followed by an exciting activity and craft options. Wine and cheese will be provided, along with special snacks for kids. A small donation is suggested to cover cost of supplies; see below. 

Due to the changing times of Havdalah throughout the year, our fall and spring events are geared towards adults, and our winter sessions are family friendly. But all are welcome to attend any and every session!

November 17: Havdalah & Pie Baking: Thanksgiving Special 

We'll be baking individual pies for Thanksgiving - so everyone will get to take something home! There will be wine and cheese for the grown-ups, snacks for the kids, and special Thanksgiving-themed crafts to enjoy while the pies are baking.
