Dear Families,
Thank you to those families pictured here who joined us for a pre-Shabbat service, modeled on our Shabbat morning mini-minyan for k-2nd graders. 

Please click here to sign-up!
Safety and Logistics:
The service is 30-45 minutes
The entire service is outdoors, if it rains the service will be cancelled.
We meet by the tree in front of Moriah.
No access to the building for any reason.

The service is geared towards families with a rising k-2nd grader, but siblings can attend. Each family sits together on their own blanket or towel that is at an appropriate social distance. Please bring your own item to sit on. All adults are required to wear masks. Children are encouraged to wear masks, but we understand young children might not be able to. Each service can accommodate ten families.
We look forward to seeing you in person and celebrating Shabbat together!

Please let Lori know if you have any questions.
