Special Youth Program
Friday, February 1st, 4:55PM
Please join us on Friday, February 1st to welcome Shabbat with a family-friendly service followed by a small cupcake treat for the kids at Krazy Cupcake Kabbalat Shabbat!
Service begins at 4:55pm

What makes this Friday service different from others you ask?

* The kids will be able to participate or even lead certain parts of davening.
* Rabbi Klibanoff will give a d'var torah directed towards the kids, leaving them with a valuable lesson (and maybe even leaving you with a topic of conversation for Shabbat dinner to keep the kids at the table for just a few more minutes!).
* The Rebbetzin will light Shabbat candles with the kids.
* There will be delicious CUPCAKES!!

We are trying something new and it will only work with your participation. You'd be CRAZY not to join us!!

We would appreciate it if you could please let Yoni know if your family will be attending (but if you forget to, please don't worry about it, we will be happy to see you there!)

We really hope to see you and your family there!
