NEW THIS YEAR: Learning for Parents! Once per month on a Thursday evening, come together with other grownups to connect over gorgeous torah study, hosted in members’ homes.
A hallmark of the Family Center approach, Shababa is a special Shabbat gathering and meal for young people (0‐6) and their grownups. It invites each and every person in the room to be part of a joyful and playful, often themed, celebration. We offer Shababa at our main location and at Levine Academy.
High Holiday Big Tent Services:
On both days of Rosh Hashanah and on Yom Kippur, we gather outside in our beautiful courtyard to mark the new year with music, prayer, and joy.
We create edible Sukkot with graham crackers, frosting, and lots of sweet treats. Then, we join the Shearith community for festive dinner in our Sukkah.
Simchat Torah and Playground Opening:
We can’t wait to celebrate the Torah, the Tree of Life, as we open and dedicate our David A. Segal z”l Family Simcha Play Centers!!
Grade Level Shabbat Dinners:
Religious school and day school students and their grownups are invited to delicious Shabbat meals so that each grade can get to know one another.
Family Fun Shabbat:
A wonderful opportunity for grade‐level students to practice leading the Shabbat morning service in a low‐key, laid‐back setting. Stay for games based on the weekly Torah reading, and of course, lunch!
At the end of a long week, join us for a joyful and relaxed Kabbalat Shabbat service, yummy dinner, and fun Shabbat activities for both kids and their grownups.
A sweet program for grandparents and their little ones (0‐4).
Havdalah and Movie Night:
Come for dinner, a candlelit ceremony to say goodbye to Shabbat, and a movie! You bring the stuffies and sleeping bags and we’ll provide the movie snacks.
Our annual celebration of all the new babies born to Shearith families!
A wonderful opportunity to experience an immersive Shabbat in community. The kids have a blast but the grownups have the most fun!
The most entertaining Passover storytelling, including a full seder meal.
Celebrate the beginning of summer with slime, mud, soap suds, paint, and more!
