Tot Shabbat/Baby Shabbat

With storytelling and music and crafts, Temple Emanu-El’s Tot Shabbat and Baby Shabbat programs allows you to introduce your children to the joy of Shabbat.

Tot Shabbat is geared specifically for our youngest Temple members (preschool and Nursery School students) and their families. Jewish educator and early learning specialist Shira Kline partners with Rabbi Amy Ehrlich to make each Tot Shabbat “singing service” memorable.

Light refreshments and art are part of each Tot Shabbat experience. Grandparents and special family members always are welcome to share the fun. Is there anything more precious than celebrating a holiday with your family?

Following are Tot Shabbats for the
2015-2016 (5776) programming year:

• Friday, October 30 ~ 4:30 PM to 6 PM

• Saturday, November 14 ~ 10 AM to 11:30 AM

• Saturday, December 5 ~ 10 AM to 11:30 AM

• Friday, January 22 ~ 4:30 PM to 6 PM

• Saturday, February 20 ~ 10 AM to 11:30 AM

Baby Shabbat is a 30-minute program designed for younger siblings of Nursery School children, although all children younger than 33 months are welcome to attend. On selected Friday mornings, from 9:15 AM to 9:45 AM, enjoy the company of other families as we anticipate Shabbat, with music, blessings and a taste of challah. There is no charge for this program.

Baby Shabbat will meet on the following dates:

• October 16 • December 4 • April 8

Tot Shabbat services are held in the Leventritt Room (One East 65th Street); Baby Shabbat is held in the Fifth Avenue Sanctuary. Help us plan by registering in advance. Also, let us know if you have taken photos at an event that you are willing to share.
