A Schtickale of Schnapps, Shabbes and Yiddishkeit, 9 am
A monthly program to learn more about Jewish tradition, religion, and history while having an early morning sip of schnapps (optional). The hour long (beginning at 11 am) program runs in lieu of services when preceded by Tot Shabbat (beginning at 10 am). We'll schmooze with the families from Tot Shabbat as they have a kiddie kiddush, then learn something interesting according to the theme for that week's Tot Shabbat program. We'll wrap up with a DELICIOUS kiddush lunch.
This program is designed for ALL members of Beth Mordecai, but especially for those who are more interested in learning and talking about all things Jewish.
Tot Shabbat, 10 am
A FREE program run by Nessa Madison, an accredited teacher, and Rabbi Saks, designed for children ages 2-5 years old, with siblings and children of all ages welcome. Celebrate Shabbat through this fun and interactive service with songs, story time, an activity or craft (Shabbat friendly of course!), and a kiddie kiddush.
