Downtown Young Families Welcome Back Havdalah

Saturday, September 17

5:00 - 7:30 PM

$36/family, includes dinner.

Registration is now closed. Walk-ins welcome.

In partnership with Jewish Family and Children's Service.

Join us for a relaxed and delicious kosher buffet dinner while meeting other families. Dinner is followed by spirited lay-lead singing in our historic sanctuary and an interactive tzedakah project. Kids will be making washcloth cupcakes for families receiving assistance with Jewish Family and Children's Service. Participants are also asked to bring a donation of diapers, as diapers are desperately needed by the agency to assist new mothers. After dinner, havdalah and tzedakah, families can head over to the Myrtle Street Playground to continue the evening (weather depending).  

Registration is now closed. Walk-ins welcome.

Kosher laws observed.
