Programs and Activities

Shabbat Sing

Every Friday during Shabbat Sing, we invite rabbis, Jewish educators and Jewish communal professionals to share stories and teach different aspects of celebrating Shabbat and Judaism. This experience also introduces students to area organizations, personalities and Jewish communities.

Parents and other family members are welcome and encouraged to attend!
