Join other families with young children to connect, play, relax and “paint” challah at a casual Shabbat hangout in the park. This celebration is especially for children ages 1 – 5 and their loved ones. Older and younger siblings are also invited.
Sing Shabbat songs, enjoy a story, challah, grape juice, and more with Jewish Gateways Rabbis Stephanie Kenndy and Bridget Wynne.
The group will gather at 10 am and start the Shabbat circle at 10:30 am. There are picnic tables and organizers will have blankets for those who want to sit on the grass. Bring snacks if want. There’s ample parking by Totland Park, or you can walk two blocks from North Berkeley BART.
All are welcome: wandering Jews, wondering Jews, those of Jewish heritage, non-Jews, multiracial relationships, interfaith relationships, low-income families, adult children of interfaith families, Jews by choice, people of color, single-parent families, LGBTQIA+. Feel free to invite friends!
