Creating Jewish memories is a cornerstone of a child’s Jewish foundation. Tifereth Israel offers various opportunities for families with young children to engage in creating those memories. Whether we’re preparing for Shabbat, celebrating Shabbat, or saying goodbye to Shabbat during Havdalah, we invite you to share these moments with us.
Getting Ready for Shabbat
We are changing how families engage on Shabbat! Some months we will offer a Shabbox activity box to families who sign up that will include a book from PJ library as well as a couple of Shabbat Friendly activities to enjoy together connecting to the story.
Throughout the year we will also offer an assortment of activities, such as challah braiding,and crafts that will help you and your children welcome Shabbat in a fun and engaging way.
